The checkered or magic chain stitch is what this is called. It truly is magical how it works! I love it. I have done the chain stitch previously but never in this magical way. Love it! Thanks to Sharon B at http://pintangle.com for teaching me this new stitch.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
