TAST - Detached Chain


I've been learning a lot of new stitches since Sharon's TAST challenge began in January.  The fly stitch, cretan, herringbone and chevron have all been new to me so it was very nice this week to play with a stitch I've done before.  I always new this as the lazy daisy stitch and how bad is that that I didn't even know it had a different name!!!

  1. I envy you your learning over the last few weeks.It's such fun to be introduced to something new each week, rather than revisit it as I've been doing. But I live in hopes that there will be a stitch I know nothing about in my future!

    You're doing a beautiful job with your experiments.

  2. I seem to always be playing catch up on posts. Your stitches are wonderful and what a great way to practice new or tried and true stitches. I find if I don't use them all the time I forget and struggle...like with the very simple blanket stitch. Love your butterfly ATC. Wonderful Weekend...
