TAST Week 8: Chain Stitch

I’m getting a little behind with my TAST samplers because I didn’t start last week’s stitch until Friday. Here it’s Thursday again and I haven’t started this week’s stitch yet. Hmmm.

First I tried some various chain stitch borders and a couple of circles.

Variations include whipped, laced, back stitched, zig-zag, twisted, double, broad, whipped double, heavy, magic and linked double chain stitches. I used some to couch other threads and added stitches to others because they were a bit boring 😛

Then I decorated a Spoonflower swatch with whipped and detached chain stitch.

I’d better get stitching on this week’s sampler!
