perle 5. I left some space between the rows to fill with other stitches.
My TAST 2010 fabric book was on my worktable for the buttonholed double chain, so I flipped through the pages to find a nice stitch for the space between my rows. I choose the raised chain stitch, you can take a look at my TAST 2010 raised chain sampler here.
The raised chain stitch is worked on a base of straight stitches, which I stitched with 4 threads of stranded floss.
Then I made the raised chain stitch with Stef Francis spun silk with flames, a lovely thread that changes in colour and thickness. Take a closer look at my sampler here.
A few weeks ago Nicole of &Stitches asked me if I would like to do an interview about my experiences with TAST. You can read it here.
My next post will be an update of my version of the garden sampler from &Stitches.
