This week, I managed to catch up on a few more stitches for TAST (Take a Stitch Tuesday.) Sharon shared some lovely stitches with us. To see what others have been up to, be sure to check out the posts and comments on Pintangle.com last week and this week.

Making trees is one of my favorite ways to use the chain stitch. I used 2 strands of a couple of shades of brown DMC embroidery floss.
I used this stitch to add small half-circle flowers to the yellow fabric along this seam, using a variegated yellow floss.
Variation: Long Tail Chain Whipped. I worked this with a size 8 variegated pink perle cotton and added a seed bead to the center of each "flower."
Next time, I would like to try this stitch with a perle cotton. I used a pink EdMar rayon floss here with small pink seed beads and filled the center with a larger pink bead. I do love the way it sparkles and catches the light!
Thank you for stopping by!
