Old long tail chain stitch variations

TAST stitch 114 and 115 are variations with long tail chain stitches: plain, beaded and whipped. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.

Today I want to share a few of my old samples of the long tail chain stitch. 
Here I used it to decorate a border with fancy hem stitch and slipped detached chain stitch.
This is part of my lock stitch sampler for TAST 2010. I used the long tailed chain stitch instead of straight stitch and tied them with lock stitch to make some pretty bouquets.
Here I used long tailed chain stitch as a base for my cloud filling, I laced both parts of the stitch with different threads.
This flower is part of my floral sampler.
A whipped wheel with long tail chain stitches in Stef Francis perle 5.
My last sample is another whipped wheel, this time I used perle 8 on felt. It’s surrounded by Ermine stitches.
Just click the photos to take a closer look at my samplers.

  4. I had to revisit to look at your Ermine Stitch. Perfect for this season and the white stuff that is falling from the sky in winter.
