Magic chain was the very first stitch for the TAST embroidery challenge in 2017. Stitch number 69, can you believe it?!?
I decided to work my sampler on felt backed with calico, which was really difficult to stitch through to be honest. I experimented with colour, using different textured threads together and thick and thin threads.
I think my favourites are the licorice allsorts coloured border, and the two rows that use a bulky knitting yarn and fine cotton thread together.
The white thread on the bottom row and the right hand border is more of my very first handspun cotton. More on that in the future!
