Time once again for Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge by pintangle. This week’s stitch is the Detached Chain Stitch otherwise known as the Lazy Daisy Stitch.
At the suggestion of my very clever husband, I decided to continue with the animal theme started last week with my Chevron Stitch Zebra. Once I had showed him what the stitch looked like, Burton quickly fired off several drawings of animals that could be adapted to stitch. My personal favorite is the Swallowtail caterpillars although I do like the owls a lot too. With tiny black beads for eyes, all animals are stitched using the Detached Chain Stitch exclusively. I strip pieced the background fabric with scraps from the church banners that I finished up a few days ago. I like how the stripes work for this sampler.
