Take A Stitch Tuesday - Chevron Stitch

Chevron Stitch for TAST

This stitch is a new one for me - quite easy to stitch, the motion falls in to a nice repetitive rhythm.

I needed to pay attention or I'd wander out of the round that I'd intended.

Chevron and Herringbone stitch

I've reverse appliqued the original circle into the multicolored background like those I'd made before.
(And caught the tail end of the natural light this evening to make these few photos!)

My little test doodle with plain sewing thread shows more opportunities to test out the chevron stitch - that delicate tone on tone has distinct possibilities, with the stitch showing mostly through shadow.

Take A Stitch Tuesday 2012 is an online weekly stitch challenge hosted by Sharon B of Pintangle.

Each week she chooses an embroidery stitch which the participants then work in any fashion they choose. All levels of participants can join in - stitch instructions are included on the site, along with some nudges in how to use them in your own designs.

There's a flickr group here, a facebook group here, and a Stitching Fingers group here.
