knotted chain stitch

Another tast stitch completed,
Has anyone else thought that the wrap around the needle is the same as a colonial knot or have I been doing it wrong?
I went on the wander again and suddenly I could see hills and contours from a map in the wander so now it has some meaning!!
I find creativity difficult, okay on my hardanger etc but everything else I struggle with, hopefully usually successfully.





May I thank you all once again for the comments you leave on my blog, it is great to know others share my work with me.

Morning Margaret I like the free movement of this piece it is like you have let your fingers and the needle do the walking. How do you colour the background I know you say with acrylic but what do you do?

just like a modern art..stitch is perfect margaret..though the gap between chains was a bit long,the design looks unique and awesome here..

Love this Margaret, and can see what you see too - reminds me of Geography in school!! The thread and background colours go so well together. I think your creativity is A1.

Margaret,
Thank you for coming over for a visit and taking time to leave me a comment, so I could find you. I agree with Linda you stitching is very interesting, reminds me of a map of an island.

I would say it is half a colonial knot and therefore more slippery than a real CK. Although I have used the cable chain before, this time i really enjoyed it. I think you did, too, as your 'geographical' piece is great!
