The next stitch from Sharonb at http://www.pintangle.com/ is the Triple Chain Stitch. The top version is the way the book showed it, going back into the previous chain to make the next one. That hid the nice little motif made by all the tack stitches meeting, so I went just beyond it in the light blue to make the next chain. I guess that actually makes it all detached chain.
Four of us took a trip to Chinatown in Portland, Oregon last Wednesday. It's a city block in the middle of town and a quiet oasis. We were all taking photos for inspiration. Here are just a few.
The bridge was such a tranquil scene with all the bustle of traffic outside the walls of the garden. You don't even notice noise inside.
We had a pleasant day. The weather in the morning was cool and overcast making for better photos and fewer people in the garden.
