1.95.linked chain stitch


It has been more than a month after my husband’s emergency surgery. He has started slowly moving around the house for the past few days. Still it going to take a while for him to get back his strength. And his optic nerve is also very weak. this concerns us a lot.  We are still praying  anxiously.

Now with the stitch sampler, which I restarted after 3 weeks.
The second part of the sampler-

4.In the first sample. I worked the stitches very closely, I wanted a heavy chain effect. In the second row, the stitches are worked with two strands of this polyester thread. The stitches are worked closely and far alternatively in the third row.

Today I started working on first TAST sampler on this year. The stitch belongs to the chain stitch variety, called linked chain stitch. Fairly a simple stitch, the working of which is available on SharonB ’s blog in the TAST category.

The details-1. I started with the basic linked chain in the first sample, working a longer version of this stitch in the second sample and with the stitch length being the same I moved back further into the previous stitch in the third row.

I wanted to try the zigzag version on this stitch in the first sample, the stitch is actually worked in two angles in this row. This was interesting, it looks like chained feather stitch. In the second row, the stitch is worked over straight stitches, similar to raised chain stitch. the stitch worked over a  satin ribbon in the third sample.
