|TAST #96 Beaded Link Chain Stitch|
For a closer view, click on the photos.
This week, I picked up a size 26 tapestry needle. I also bought the size 28 tapestry needle, as it looked a wee bit daintier and I wondered if I could fit a petite glass seed bead over the eye. (I doubt it, but I will get to that soon enough!)
I used 1 strand of DMC size 12 perle cotton and Mill Hill 00358 glass seed beads. These seed beads may not have been the best choice. My first bead went on like a charm. However, by the time I fit 7 beads onto the link, I had found more than 20 that would not fit over the eye. So, I managed to thread my size 28 tapestry needle and finished the rest of the link with only 5 of those 20 being too small. Yay!
My links are not quite consistently sized, so I definitely need more practice. That should not be a problem, though. I love this stitch and look forward to using it again!
Here is the view from the side.

Finishing this block and putting my wall hanging together will be my Work in Progress (WIP) Wednesday project. So, I hope to have more progress to share with you tomorrow!
Oh, and the Heart DYB Round Robin is full, so I will have another round robin to share with you all soon!
Thank you for stopping by.
