This stitch sampler is completed. More samples were possible because this stitch  was both quick and easy.  No thread tension stress at all. The wave movement of the stitch does open a big world for decorative stitches. The whole sampler-

This week’s cloud filling stitch on TAST 2013 by SharonB was also part of the previous challenge. I worked this as line stitch then. This is a very easy stitch. I wanted to start with some filling ideas.
