TAST Weeks 7 and 8 - Detached Chain and Chain Stitch
Last week, Week 8, was Chain Stitch week. Again, a pretty basic stitch, but easier to vary with lots of possibilities. So here's what I have done- from top to bottom: 1. Chain Stitch, 2. Chain stitch varying the size of stitch, 3. Zigzag Chain stitch, 4. Twisted Chain stitch, 5. Open Chain stitch, 6. "Spiked" Chain- my own name for it - just simply chain stitch with straight stitches added in another color, 7. Braided Chain or Heavy Chain stitch, 8. Cable Chain stitch, 9. Alternating Barred Chain and 10. Stacked Chain stitch. Whew! Now to get going on this week's challenge- couching.
Sharon's highlights for these two weeks can be viewed here and here.
