This weeks TAST challenge was Chain Stitch and this is what I stitched for the challenge....

As I wanted the Chain Stitch to form the sea I did it using 2 colours in my needle. It's the first time I've used 2 colours at once rather than swapping them, easy to do once I got the hang of it.

The design is by Abi Gurden and she designed it for me in 2009 as part of an exchange with my Friendly Stitchers Yahoo Group. This is the first time I've stitched it using other stitches rather than cross stitch.


  1. Lovely! I'm curious to see it all when you're done :)

  2. You're boxes are really good Jo, as well as your stitching. Did you find the chain stitch very easy to do as I have been trying that myself and I keep struggling.

    1. Chain stitch was one of the first stitches I learnt as a child on binca so it's never bothered me. I found practising on aida is a good way to get your tension right.
