TAST 34 (&33)

Week 34 of Take A Stitch Tuesday, is the Linked Double Chain Stitch ...a combination of chain stitch and twisted chain stitch..........

 start with two chain stitches, then a twisted chain at the bottom..........

this is the first time embroidering this stitch,  and it reminded me of

...the little paw pads on rabbit's paws. :)

          I did a row of Pekinese stitch (week 33) as well to catch up .
TAST challenge/ pintangle

                        linked double chain on the left; pekinese on the right....
                   come follow along! and, no, I am not leading you down a rabbit will learn a new stitch a week, and be encouraged......whether you stitch or not :)

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is renewed day by day. 
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory; 
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal2 corinthians 4:16-18

Cast...On...TAST 32

For Take a Stitch Tuesday week 32 it is the cast on stitch- the petals of the flowers are done in cast on, with some bullions, french knots and seeding..........

this stitch was new to me, and it was wonderful to learn...the cast on stitch....

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
