This week the challenge is a stitch called Butterfly chain stitch. I think people will enjoy it.
It is a stitch that can be easily glanced over when browsing a stitch glossary but it is a lot of fun to work and vary threads you can create lots of interesting effects.
You can zig zag it, work it is squares along a curve etc
You can stack lines of the stitch to create patterns .
How to join in
It is not complicated. All you need to do is stitch a sample, take a photograph of it, put in online in your blog, flickr site or on Stitchin Fingers page, swing by here again and leave a comment with your full web address so people can visit and see your sample. Where is here? At the bottom of this article under the tags is a link that says ‘book mark permalink’.
Any special rules?
There are no rules but I do have a request, please link back here.
Interesting work will be featured
Each week I will feature samples that participants have stitched order to draw attention to creative and interesting work. This means some work will be re-published. I will credit and link to the owners website but I assume that when you leave your link here, I have your permission to feature your work. If you do not want your work to be featured please say in the comment, you leave and I wont include it in the feature.
If you need further information on the challenge a list of stitches covered so far or directions on how to participate please visit the TAST FAQ page.
