I am starting to work on the week 9 stitched tag and realized I hadn't yet post week 8, so here it is. Week 7 was the Detached Chain which was a good segway into this week's Chain Stitch. Of course I had to add a tree. I didn't add any rick rack this week, but did create a band through the center. This stitch works great for monograms. I actually did this one freehand and without preplanning, so you can see how manageable this stitch is.
Another name for this stitch is Tambour. The colors I used are actually navy and white. I used a white and a navy thread together on the word 'chain' and on the outer chains of the center band. It was a very overcast day when I photographed the tag, so the colors aren't very accurate.
