Friday Homework for Lesson 8: Heavy Chain Stitch

As the headmistress, 'teacher' and student of Sunday Stitch School I can decide which stitch to teach, how to teach it and how to work it.

Stitch no 8, Heavy Chain Stitch was a good choice! Oh, I LOVE this stitch. It is easy, quick and enjoyable to work, and the result is better than I expected.

For my homework I did some doodling and scribbled a loop,

then wrote the initial H for someone's birthday card.

I have not had the time to make them into cards yet, but will do.

    2. Bravo! on the neatness and designs. I have stitched a sample but it is no way as neat as your work.

      The stitch is one I intend to improve on, as it could be applied to many stitch projects.

    3. Once you get the hang of slipping the needle under TWO chains it is easy to get a neat result.
      Yes, it is a useful stitch to know. I am wondering if and how you will be using it on your A year of Stitches.

    1. That's a good idea, especially if you want a raised look. Do give it a try.
