TAST, WEEK 7, DETACHED CHAIN STITCH




This week, the stitch for Sharon B's TAST was the detached chain stitch.  I found quite a few examples of my previous work, plus I used it on my CQJP for February last week.

I used it 1 places on this block, it is hard to see because of the poor lighting this morning.  I am trying to get this posted before I go to work.  There are the light blue ones at the ends of the feather stitch, and the gold ones along a seam.




This next one has it at the ends of the lace, cluster of 3 detached chains.








This one has detached chains at on parts of the maidenhair stitch.


And this one, above the brass butterfly has a row of detached chains sitting on top of a string of pearls stitch. 

Well I want to get this posted before the next stitch is given. It will probably be up by the time I get home tonight.  I am getting close to the finish of my February CQJP block.  My next 2 days I am off, so I hope
to get my March block made and this one finished up.  Till next time...

I love you crazy patch embroidery Karrin. It is something I love to do too but just not finding enough hours in each day. Regards Dianne.
