TAST Week 7: Detached Chain
This week the TAST stitch was detached chain. I skipped the evenweave sampler this week and just created a free embroidery piece. These abstract flowers are based on the design of my coffee thermos which is orange and white polka dots covered with brightly colored chrysanthemums on it.
There are examples of detached chain in the motif rows of several of the evenweave sampler sections, to add additional texture to the weekly stitches. Go back and take a look.
I work full time as an engineer and have a small craft business, What Jenny Makes. I love needlework, textiles and jewelry of all kinds and am very interested in color. I also am an avid reader, a very good cook, and an amateur photographer. You can find my work for sale at www.whatjennymakes.com or in my Etsy shop: What Jenny Makes. If you are interested in sharing my love of literature, I am the current owner of The Book Group List and The Literature Study Group in Yahoo Groups.
