A few more possibilities of working beaded feathered chain stitch are explored.
After working the long tailed chain stitch, a straight stitch was taken to work the bead, before working the next chain stitch in the first sample. The same treatment is repeated in the opposite direction with three beads in the second sample. Two straight stitches with beads, perpendicular to the long tailed beaded chain stitch with bead is repeated in the third sample- an interesting beaded version. Two rows of this stitch are worked together in the fourth sample.
I worked the other version of feathered chain and added two beads in the first sample. Ricrac is couched with this version of the stitch, with beads inside the chains in the second sample. Beads are worked on the closed feather stitches worked after the zigzag chain in the last sample. I tried this version with some variations on feathered chain stitch sampler.

I am still floundering on my exercises on the sumptuous surfaces class, so did not explore the possibilities of this stitch much.
