Old crested chain stitches

TAST stitch 70 is crested chain stitch. It’s a great stitch with many different looks. This is my TAST 2007 sampler, stitched with stranded floss on muslin.
A seam on block 6 of my Crazy Monday quilt. I stitched it with 3 threads of stranded floss and added some straight stitches.
This seam is part of my Tilda ornament. The thread is Stef Francis perle 5.
The next 3 samples are details of my embroidery Birth. The crested chain at the left is stitched with perle 8.
Two rows of crested chain stitches in light and dark green perle 5 at the right.
And a crested chain stitch with Stef Francis perle 5 at the top.
This flower is part of my floral sampler for PLOS. It’s stitched on the same linen as the sampler I started last weekend. The thread is Stef Francis perle 5.
