Woven Detached Chains

Stitch number 58 on Sharon's Pintangle site and what a lovely and easy stitch this was to learn.  Just make a chain stitch and needle weave it back and forth.  I used both perle cotton and floss and added a row to the bottom of my underwater scene.  Unfortunately that's about all the stitching I did but this week looks much better for stitching time :)

 We went for a walk in the hills and the lichen on this stone is so eye catching I had to take a picture.
 With eye's closed he kept nosing the air.  I wonder what he was smelling?  Hopefully spring!!

 Peeping Torn Ear was watching me through the window for quite awhile Sunday morning with eyes that are saying "I'm hungry!"  It's been a very long, cold winter.
