Hand Embroidery Samples 2 ..... Detached Chain Stitch

This is the latest of my latest Hand Embroidery samples - Detached Chain Stitch sewn onto Irish Linen, using threads including imitation silk, DMC stranded embroidery thread, hand dyed linen and waxed linen.



This experimental sample was stitched onto woven wool/tweed, using threads including wool, imitation silk and Tudor Twist. I am finding this stitching very therapeutic.  

Have a go yourself - no rules, just play!

  1. I like the idea of a journal of stitches - I may add it to my list of future projects!
