Old chain stitches

The TAST stitch for week 8 is the chain stitch. It’s the first stitch that was not part of a previous TAST challenge. But I found a few samples to share. The first one is an ATC I made in 2008.
In 2009 there was a series of colour ATC swaps. This is one of my yellow ATC’s. 
In addition to the chain stitches I used couching, woven wheels and quarter buttonhole wheels.
A detail of an embroidered mushroom stuffie. I filled the dots with chain stitches. The thread is stranded DMC color variations.
This is a progress photo of my first encrusted CQ block. I made chain stitches with 1 strand of green DMC satin and whipped it with a light green perle 12. I still remember I enjoyed watching it change while stitching the light green.
