TAST 2007 - oyster stitch

I had a real struggle with this stitch at first. I have used a piece of 'embellisher' fabric. I outlined a design based on curves and circles in back stitch in variegated perle cotton.

Oyster stitch is a rosette chain stitch, surrounded by a simple chain stitch. Both rosette chain and oyster stitch were new to me, so I started with a couple of rows of rosette chain in wool. Then I filled in the gaps with single oyster stitches in perle cotton.
