Fancy hem stitch & slipped detached chain stitch

TAST stitch 67 is fancy hem stitch, TAST stitch 68 is slipped detached chain stitch. I combined both on a CQ seam sampler on  Aida. It was inspired by Susie W’s fancy hem stitch. I stitched the fancy hem stitch with red perle 5 and wrapped it with cotton a broder. The slipped detached chain stitch is done in Stef Francis perle 5. I added a long tailed chain stitch with cotton a broder. I like the Egyptian look of this seam.
Take a closer look at my CQ seam here.

  2. Nice work; I like the contrast in colour value, soft vs stiff lines and that the green stems sprout out of the green in the Fancy Hem stitch.
