10.58.woven detached chain


I am still in the journey of combining the woven detached chain stitches with other stitches to form stitch motif patterns. After working on them ,I completed this sampler here.

In the first piece, I tried this stitch with sheaf stitch to experiment this as filling stitch. The second one is worked with Italian border stitch. The top one of the last sample is laced with rimjim thread. Then I tried working this woven detached chain stitches over a piece of lace in the last one.

This stitch is an easier way adding decorative element to seams. Though Sharon suggested this stitch will be useful for working leaves, I did not try this as leaf, mainly because I wanted to work some motifs. I had good practice of this stitch in this sampler. And it was fun experimenting with it as Pamela pointed out.

I tried some more samples of woven detached chain stitch with other line stitches.

Worth trying ideas of working woven stitches with few other TAST stitches, I get to practice this stitch well and add more stitch variations to my sampler.

This week’s stitch on the TAST 2013 challenge by SharonB is woven detached chain. Sharon has been developing the challenge stitches in a very great way. The previously known stitches are slowly evolving into textured ones. By exploring these stitches, my stitch variations are also becoming interesting. Left to myself, I wouldn’t have even thought of trying the finer aspects of these stitches.
Today I tried this simple stitch with small variations.
