This week it is chain stitch of the stitch challenge TAST 2012 by SharonB . I have used this chain stitch on my embroidery many times. but when it comes to exploring this stitch’s possibilities, Iam stuck for ideas.
Sharon had also written that-
For more experienced stitchers I am encouraging them to take the stitch and push it further. There are loads of varieties of chain stitch some of which I introduce later in the challenge (although not next week!) That the challenge is to take a stitch and see what can be done with it.
This led me to think of differnet varieties of chain stitch. actually I had not completed the previous TAST challenges. With this idea,I browsed through the stitch categories of the previous challenges and found these easy[hopefully] chain stitch varieties.
1.cable chain stitch
2.knotted cable chain stitch
3.checkered chain stitch
4.chained bar stitch.
5.shell chain stitch
with these choices, I have to learn and work on these stitches .
hoping to start tomorrow.
