TASTY Detached Chain


Here are a couple of pix of Detached Chain/Lazy Daisy for SharonB's TAST challenge. I just love the Lazy Daisy/Detached Chain stitch. There are so many things you can do with this stitch. The top seam treatment has yellow Lazy Daisy done in a velour thread, surrounded by a Lazy Daisy in pink floss. The leaves are a Decorative Lazy Daisy stitch, meaning that a decorative straight stitch is added right down the middle of the Lazy Daisy.

The next row is Lazy Daisies with some straight stitches and French knots done in pink.

Happy Stitchin'......

Very pretty designs. You have a nice hand with color combinations.

The double flowers are very pretty - haven't seen ones like them before.
