TAST #98 Beaded Shell Chain

TAST #98 is a beaded version of the previous stitch, and called Beaded Shell Chain Stitch.
I should not have crowded the stitches with so many beads... 

Look at Anneliese's clear stitches. I should have made something similar...
Isn't Mary's star wonderful?
Maureen's fantastic seaweed is awesome.
Carol's clear beads are like raindrops.
Angela has embedded her stitches on a hairy surface.
Pamela always checks out how the stitches look in different thread.
Annet never lets us down with some fantastic combinations.

If YOU, too, want to learn how to broaden your stitch library, head over to Pintangle and let Sharon teach you.

    1. One of the great things with TAST is that we can share the way we use the stitches. I love your thread test for each stitch!

    1. This is perfect for CQ but I would recommend large stitches and not too many beads!

    1. More beads = the beads sit still, fewer beads = you see more of the stitch itself. I think you have to choose the number of beads for what you want the stitches to look like. I mean, if you are making a mirrored design that should look the same on either side of the middle, you need the beads to be fixed in one particular place. If you are doing free form embroidery and the stitches should 'move, then a single bead would be best.... What a lot of philosophy over a bead!!!

    1. You're welcome! Sharing your work and getting inspiration from other participants is one of the most enjoyable things about TAST. I am SO glad Sharon has come up with this idea.

    1. So many things can be made with the TAST stitches but often you need to see others' work to fully understand the potential of a stitch.

  6. Every time I see your TAST stitches I think I must get back into doing some, but I can't make my mind up what to stitch on.

    1. When I joined TAST in 2012 there was another Swedish participant. She stitched on WOOD. She drilled holes and stitched with thread! Another TAST member decorated TEMARI balls so why not use paper, net, plastic... well you are so creative and should find something great to work on.
