TAST 79 Crossed Chain and the Birdmen of Sapporo

This week’s stitch at Sharon B’s Pintangle Blog is the Crossed Chain Stitch.  I tried it out with #12 perle (ecru) and #8 perle (pink).  I also did a line alternating the crossed chain with the woven cross, then some individual crossed chain stitches with #8 perle (green).

Birdmen of Sapporo
I like seeing most live animals. City Birds (I think they are pigeons) are the exceptions.  I think these things are really creepy. When I saw these men in Odori Park with birds on them I was both horrified and fascinated. I had to take the pictures, but I didn’t want to get too close.




  1. Fancy letting "feral pigeons" that close!

  2. Love your stitching. I agree the bird thing is horrifying!

  3. Beautiful stitches, unpleasant birds.
