Magic chain stitch

                              The new stitch of Tast2012 by SharonB 
           Its name is checkered or magic chain stitch and if you want to know
                      how it is managed then have a look here at Pin Tangle
I made a Paisley motive
at least I think it is one
and added a few little embroideries around the motive
for I wanted to use up the remaining ends of threads
I am stitching on very old linnen
I washed it and it shrank by 10 percent


  1. Colurful and beautiful !!!!

  2. love your magic chain Anneliese. The paisley is a good design to show the stitch to advantage.

  3. a great way to show off this stitch
    Hope you are now feeling much better Anneliese

  4. It is a very nice colorful paisley motive. The design reminds me of something, I haven't discovered yet what???

  5. your paisleys are nice and colorful ! I like it
