Tast - Barred chain and alternating barred chain



Hia everyone, i am sorry posts have been thin on the ground of late, work has been very high pressure at the mo, and life has been putting me in a bad mood.
Anyway here is a peek at my C+G resolved piece for texture, which is a hanging, and if you check back through the posts I have blogged on it's development lots! It is coming together now, but beading takes ages!
Also here is my TAST barred chain, I really liked this stitch, it was new to me and I think it has given a really organic feel to the sample, hence the addition of flowers. I have been stripping copper electrical wire for my hanging and have kept some of the plastic covering for "something". One is brown one is blue, I used some of the brown to couch down on this piece. I had to do the alternating barred chain in a zig zag to do this. I also used it to couch down circles of sequin waste.This was a lovely stitch to do, really textural and crunchy!
