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.

    Cute! What an inspiration. I rarely stitch animals, usually I prefer flowers and leaves but your animals are so cute … who knows. You have a really clever husband and you are a great stitcher. Your sampler just makes me smile. Thank you for that.
