Take a Stitch Tuesday

This week it's Chain Stitch with  The stamped image is from a styrofoam plate I made just using a pen. It's a leftover from taking a meal home. I love to reuse rather than throw out things. They are good for experimenting with shapes, because if they don't work out, you really haven't lost anything. The main vein and outside are the chain stitch.

Chain stitch is another regular for Crazy Quilt.

It can be whipped over, threaded, or stitched over an earlier row.

Using unusual threads adds a whole new look.

I like your experiments with the chain stitch. It proves there are different ways to use it. Dianne.
