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.
