TAST stitch 97 is shell chain stitch. I’ve used it on my second pebble. I stitched two rows and decorated it with woven picots. The thread is cotton a broder.
TAST stitch 98 is beaded shell chain stitch. When I saw Queenie’s stumpwork lady a few days ago, I remembered the baroque lady I paper pieced in 2005. I used perle 12 and 2 mm beads to stitch a nice collar to her dress.
The pattern of the baroque lady is designed by Ula Lenz.
TAST stand for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.
