Week 8 TAST Chain Stitch

The stitch for week 8 of TAST is the Chain stitch. After I created my sampler page, I used the stitch to embellish my tea basket. Each week I follow Sharon’s advice. I make a cuppa and view the inspiring work of other TAST participants.

    Oh! Hey! Stitching on stuff around the house… watch out, house! Thanks for the idea, and nice job on the tea basket. ( I think you’re missing the essential Stash Lemon Ginger…?) 😉
    Happy Stitching!
