Back to routine after ten days in Chennai, India. The working of this stitch is on Pin tangle.

Paisley has surfaced again on the TAST challenge. This piece was started before I left for holidays. Did not have time to even open the box of WIPs the whole time in Chennai.

The idea is to fill the paisley design with chained bar.
Starting with dark blue, and mixing dark and medium blue, the lines were filled with surface satin stitches. The zigzag chain stitch was worked in dark and light teal cotton skeins.
