People certainly enjoyed working detached chain stitch this week.
Once again I can only encourage people to browse the links people have left as you are missing out if you make some time in your week to make a cuppa, and take in some inspiring eye candy.
First up in htis week’s highlights, I would like to point out that over on Threads and Patches, Marjolein has written a tutorial on how to secure a trapped bead using detached chain stitch
Another tutorial is available over on Let’s learn Embroidery demonstratng using detached chain stitch to attach a shisha mirror
On Arts Crafts and More Veena used detached chain stitch to circle shisha mirrors.
Over on Stitching with a Shimmy, Romilly has provided a free pattern which uses detached chain stitches
I smiled when I saw the little wet duck on this sample from Airy Nothing
Over on Carrement Crazy there is a lovely example of detached chain used on a shabby chic or primitive crazy quilt piece. I am not sure what to call this developing crazy quilting style but I really like it!
I really enjoyed the freeform sample from Anneliese which looks a little like a palm tree!
Another enjoyable piece is found over on playful stitching. I particularly liked the owls.
I loved the colour scheme Chris Richards used in her latest mandela over on Ella’s Craft Creations.
Over on Bland garner, trasor och trådar there is a series of experiments with this stitch
This brightly coloured poppy field by Patricia Gellon attracted my eye too
Finally this freeform sampler has been growing under the hands of Yarn Goddess over on Sooner or later.
