Blue Tag and Oyster Stitch

I feel like I'm repeating myself, but tags are addictive.

I made the background with turquoise and green wool that I needlefelted. Then I did some stitching by hand. I had a go at the oyster stitch (the three green ones) but I'm not sure I got it right. If anyone that reads this is an oyster stitch connoisseur can you please let me know if it looks OK or not.

I know that everyone did this stitch on TAST a few weeks ago, and I've looked at all your wonderful blogs and at Sharons Stitch Dictionary and at Quieter Moments (Great blog, Elizabeth!) but I'm still not sure I've got it right. I'd like to learn how to do it though because I think it looks really nice.

Another great tag. I love the fibers you are putting on for the tassels.

Your tag looks great.

I, like you, am having trouble figuring out the oyster stitch. I looked at both of the directions from Sharon and Elizabeth and I am still not able to figure this one out.

Your tags are great Annica. Such lovely colours. What are the fibres you are hanging on your tags, is it knitting yarn?
