Take a Stitch on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 Welcome to week 7!
Seven already? It’s my lucky week — I’m home from vacation and I’m going to get caught up 🙂 So calling all TAST re-runners, let’s stitch this week!
This week’s stitch is Detached Chain stitch. Here is the SharonB’s Stitch Dictionary pages with instructions on how to do it.
- Detached Chain: http://inaminuteago.com/stitchdict/stitch/chain-detach.html
Here are the stitch variations related to *Detached* Chain listed on that page that are not future Stitches of the Week. There are many other chain stitch variations listed, but they’re all *attached* chains and I think I’ll address them later when some of them show up as stitches-of-the-week! If you like trying out variations, this is the only one for this week. (For your convenience, listed here to open in a new window)
- Variation: Feathered Chain Stitch
Here’s what SharonB wrote for TAST 2012 Week 7: Detached Chain Stitch. You can read her instructions and see inspiring examples at these links.
- Here’s some creative inspiration for this stitch from the TAST 2012 stitchers.
Please follow her procedure and put a link to your published Detached Chain Stitch pictures in the comments of the latest TAST post here. Just click the post title, and scroll down to the comment section!
Also, please post the link to your Detached Chain Stitch photos in THIS comment section if you also wish to share it here. It doesn’t matter when you get it done, because if you are following this blog, you’ll have a bonus benefit…
If you miss a stitch but then are able to work it later, go ahead and put your link on the matching Stitch of the Week post. Each week, I will round up ALL NEW stitch LINKS entered at this blog, whether they are from the current stitch or a past one. Yours won’t be lost back there on an old Stitch of the Week post! I will put them up Monday (noon-ish PST) in a weekly recap post, about 12 hours before I put up the Stitch of the Week.
Of course, I will be putting my TAST 2012 Re-run stitches right here on this blog, because that’s why I started it in the first place 🙂
