TAST Week 33

Week 33 - Pekinese Stitch
TAST 2012 presented the Pekinese stitch for Week 33.  A stitch I had never seen or heard about before!  Sharon B said "it is also a great finishing stitch around the edge of items like fabric postcards, ATC (Artist Trading Cards)  bags, purses, needle books or pin cushions. Anything small that requires a tidy edge".  Mary Tomas's Dictionary said it is also known as Chinese, blind or forbidden stitch.

Took quite some time for me to "try" and get my loops the same size throughout - but I did try and I am not too sure this stitch will be tried by me again - but one never knows!
