This is the tenth week stitch of the TAST2010 Challenge by sharon,When I started on this challenge, I never imagined that I ‘ll like it so much,and I’ll start my own personal library of stitches.Sharon inspires me a lot.I am really motivated by her accomplishments which She generously shares with everyone.
I didn’t post this stitch , because it was similar to18th week wave st .
Now for the stitch sampler.This stitch required tacking stitches for the clouds, I took a short cut method by doing this in a polka dotted fabric. Though this st is basically a filling st,I did it in a line.
This stitch is a versatile st.I just kept adding more lines.

Next one is with alternating 4 detached chain st in between.Cloud filling samp-3In these two lines, one is with sequins in the gap,another is 3 straight stitches in the intersection.Cloud filling samp-4
The above variations are done by adjusting the tacking stitches.

the top line is one short cloud st and one long cloud st.
The next 2 lines- with fly stitches, and detached chain sts.
bottom line-I placed more sequins.

I tried whipping the stitch, But it looks more like, two threads were inserted into the tacking stitches.
I tried using different shades of the same clour on the next line.
The last line is a trial in doing this stitch vertically.

It was really easy to do this stitch in this fabric
The tacking stitches I made in cotton skeins with crewel needle,
And the cloud filling is done in pearl cotton with tapestry needle.
