When I see the samples worked by other TAST members, I feel my raised chains are not very neat. Still I could practice!

When last week’s raised chain stitch version one was announced on SharonB’s blog, I just posted the pictures of earlier worked sampler. I tried a few samples for this time-
1.Raised chain stitch is worked between two rows of basic chain stitch in the first sample. Pekinese stitch was worked on one side of raised chain as the second sample. Two rows of raised chain worked with sheaf stitch between them in the third sample. Raised chain stitches are worked over Vandyke stitch in the last sample.

Last week’s raised chain stitch on SharonB ‘s TAST 2013 challenge was part of earlier challenge. Though I had worked the sampler, it was not posted on the blog. I am not detailing the samples because of the limited use of my right hand.
