Detached chain stitch

The TAST stitch for week 7 is the detached chain stitch. I’ve stitched on 3 different samplers this week. The first one  is my rust dyed fabric with buttonhole stitches. Now I added detached chain stitches with the same threads: blue stranded floss, brown broder special and light blue Caron Wildflowers.
My next experiment was on black linen. I tried to stitch a pattern of detached chain stitches with perle 8, it looked much better on paper.
A combo of feather and detached chain stitches on grey linen. Left perle 8 and Caron Watercolours, right perle 5 and DMC broder special.
Today I added some detached chain stitches to my pebble. I mixed them with lots of French knots.
This pebble is to blame that  I didn’t experiment much with the detached chain stitch. It’s very addictive! You can read more about this pebble adventure here.

  2. I think the white on black pattern would work great in a setting. I don't think it's bad by itself. I'm intrigued by the rust dyed sampler.
