BAS - Week 52 - Open Chain Stitch

This week's BAS (Build a Seam) Challenge stitch is the Open Chain Stitch, also known as Ladder Stitch.  There is a tutorial for this stitch in Sharon B's Dictionary of Stitches.
There is another tutorial on the Embroiderer's Guild site which also has a mirror image available for those who are left handed.  This stitch may be boring itself, but I think there are possibilities to add to it in ways that will make it a little more exciting.  Have fun!
