…and checking out the detached chain samples for the TAST, Take a Stitch Challenge. Here’s what I have been seeing! So many creative ideas.
Judith finished up a ufo by incorporating the detached
chain stitch on small heart cushions…also using sequins…verra nice.
Purple Missus does a lot of dying! Wow!
Françoise of creatilfun did a lot of samples. I really like the
one with the french knots, cross stitch and lazy daisies. It looks so dreamy.
I’ve been back to frogstich’s blog and shes stitched up a jumble of coloured detached stitches which look so coooool!
Karin Hammel has made a colourful ball with the stitches and she used special german thread. So nice. Karin, you could call this Painter’s Palette. (needlefelting)
Odile stitched up a sheep…the possibilities are endless.
Magpie’s designs are so intricate. I’m waiting on word back from her if she is incorporating the design into her crazy quilt wall hanging.
I forget Mariyarn’s name, sorry :(….but she stitched up a small bouquet, made with detached stitch with ordinary embroidery floss, and the leaves made with a fraying ribbon. She mentiioned that the flowerpot is a stitch from Primrose Design´s blog who has a small stitch school. I’ll have to check it out and put the link in here.
Charlene stitched up a beautiful peacock. She printed up a photo of peacock and used it to create her own pattern design….onto silk. She even used hand-dyed silk and seed beads.
I went back to dawn’s place and she has elaborated on the herringbone stitch.
Ati is doing her samples on crazy quilting…so nice. and she also made a bauble bag. I have never seen one and it seems so complicated.
I hope you don’t mind Ati, but I want to admire the bag and check it out, so I’ve posted your picture here….let me know if you want me to take it down. Everytime I tried to post a comment on your site, my computer froze up.
So where do I find a pattern for a bauble bag? Isn’t it neat?
Well, I kind of feel like Sharon here, but I really want to see as much as I can. I am learning so much here.
