Haven't tried it, but it looks like a great stitch for future projects.

Looks like a no brainer to me-bet Cy is disappointed.

I'm going to have to step up the pace and dig into my Stitch Stash to get June's block done.

I did the cable chain as one variation when we did the chain stitch. I'm ahead! (well, I'll probably do some more.....maybe....heheheh.....)

Cy said...

Haha!! actually I quite like this stitch, so I'm not disappointed at all. I don't think I've used it lately though so it will be a refresher week for me.
Yes, I'm with you on having to step up the pace on my June block too. So I'm pleased we have a "no brainer" to help fill it up this week.

Cy said...

Whoooops!!! Forget I said this is a 'no brainer'. I've just had to rip two rows of it from my cq block.
That'll teach me to be flippant about a stitch.

Oh no, Cy, and I haven't even started my cable chain!

Connie Eyberg Originals said...

I messed up when I did my first few stitches but left it as a reminder to take my time and follow the rules. Otherwise I'm enjoying this stitch.

Carol Neale-Broughton said...

This is so not very encouraging. Can't delay any longer, lunch then get to it.

Debra Spincic said...

If our 2 Star Students are messing up, what hope is there for the rest of us? I must get to it too-Saturday is just around the corner.

Sometimes mess-ups lead to new discoveries.

Debra Spincic said...

Yes, the invention of Post-It notes happened because the scientist couldn't get the glue to stick permanently. So, you never know!
