A lovely name for detached  triple chain stitch. The method of working this stitch is on Queenie’s blog. Working this way gives more dimension to an ordinary detached chain stitch. So I worked the stitch on satin cloth, pattern taken from old pattern book.

This project was completed just before the tailor left for vacation. The worked satin fabric was sewn on the towel by him.

The old patterns which have detached chain options can be used for this stitch. Another option  is using this stitch with ribbon embroidery. A pretty and easy stitch for textural embroidery.

I liked this pattern, will work good for bookmarks also.

Still staying motivated by the postaweek challenge.

In 2009, I worked four towel edgings in cross stitch.

 Isaw a towel,edged with evenweave cloth, this  idea inspired me to buy a towel cloth and  an evenweave[rectangular or matti] cloth from Bombay deing store in  Chennai.

 Then I asked the tailor to attach  these two fabrics and edge it with lace. He was able to make four towels.

The patterns for these towels I took from Antique pattern library.

the first one-

Yes, They are all pink towels, I was trying to hide the fact  till now!
