7th week stitch of the needlework challenge TAST2010
This stitch was quite an easy one to work. And it resembled twisted chain st.
The first 4 lines were done in threads of different thickness, got the hang of this stitch-
In this line, I did the zigzag variation and added beads.
The sixth line -Just alternatively varied the length of each stitch.
the next one,four lines of the stitch in a wave pattern.
Brown bugle beads were added to a line .
Four stitches were slanted alternatively to form a line, with some antique gold sequins.
Next I tried to do this as a version I saw in Encyclopedia of emb sts.It was refered as satin with a outline.
After this I just played with this stitch a while.In these variations-the needle was taken out with a very small insertion, leaving a small curve at at the end.
Inthese two lines I laced and whipped the lines of Rope stitch.
And this is my full sampler-
While browsing the flickr gallery of this challenge I came across this information from my friend Jowynn.
Since the sampler was already done, I just used the alternative in my project-
