Finally finished my week 7 detached chain stitch sample for the TAST challenge and I must say that at first I thought this little stitch was a bit boring!
I’d always used it as an isolated, dot-dot, sort of a decoration. I was going to stitch onto aida fabric but decided to use a re-cycled wool scarf that I’d dyed a while ago as the feel of wool is so tactile I thought it would encourage me to spend a little longer experimenting.
Once I got into the stitchzone I got quite excited by the way this single unit can be varied and how easily it makes friends with feather, fly and many other stitches.
I am going to use it as a little bag for storing some beads and bits in. Looking forward to seeing what’s next!
Did any of you find this week’s stitch uninspiring at first??
Love to know!
