Old oyster stitches

The TAST stitch for week 30 is oyster stitch. It’s a stitch I struggled with the first time I tried it and this video helped me very much. It’s a stitch I often use, but it’s not always visible in my work. This first detail is part of my TAST 2007 sampler. It’s stitched on muslin with 2 threads of stranded floss.
The oyster stitch is a perfect tulip. This detail is part of block 3 of my 
Crazy Monday quilt. It’s done with stranded floss.
This is a detail on my woven trellis stitch sampler, a TAST 2010 stitch. 
I stitched oyster stitches with perle 5 to represent leaves.
There are lots of oyster stitches in my sumptuous embroidery Halloween and Relief, but it’s not visible any more. This is a detail on my sumptuous embroidery Touch. There’s an oyster stitch at the bottom of the whipped wheel. I think the thread is a perle 5.
This is the first stitch I couldn’t find in any of my stitch dictionaries.
