This week is the last TAST stitch of the year as we will take a break for 3 weeks over the busy holiday season. I will posting a new TAST stitch on January 12th to start the new year of Take a stitch Tuesday.
The Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge stitch this week is an interesting version of Chain stitch called Cable chain stitch. As usual the tutorial for Cable chain stitch will take you through the step by step process and give you a few ideas on how to use it. Cable chain is a pleasant stitch to work because you can develop a good easy paced rhythm. It is also a very useful stitch as it is linear stitch that can follow a curve well.
How to join in on the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge
If you are new to hand embroidery the challenge is to learn the stitches. If you are an experienced embroiderer push these stitches in creative manner and share with beginners what can be done with a little imagination.
