Stitches 80 to 83
Four samples for TAST this week with Sharon b. at Pin Tangle.
Sharon presents a new stitch challenge every week at Take a Stitch Tuesday.
After practicing the stitch around a 4” frame, I try to come with a design using that stitch.
At the rate I'm going , I probably won't ever get caught up but I really enjoy learning new stitches and then trying to figure what I can do with them.
Stitch 80– Raised Chain Version 1
I really like the looks of this, gave a nice raised rounded shape as more rows were added to the base stitches.

Stitch 81– Raised Chain Version 2
I didn't like the looks of this one as much as Version 1 which is probably due to the thread I used.
|Raised Chain - Version 2|
I like trying all different kinds of threads and wools. I found this at our Hobby Shop and thought I'd give it a try. It is called Sizzle by Red Heart, a 100% Nylon #2 (colour Fiesta Mix). It is very slippery and very hard to keep even tension on the stitches .
Stitch 82 – Spanish Feather Stitch
I think this stitch looks so elegant, I like it a lot.

Stitch 83 – Siennese Stitch
Fast and easy. I think a lot could be done with this stitch, see my corners. It is sometimes hard to figure out how to turn the corners.
Good filler, I used a varigeated wool and offset the stitches.
I will link up to TAST at Pin Tangle .
