Just been playing a bit on the computer cause the detached chain stitch piece reminds me of "Zierlauch". Sorry, I have no idea what it is called in englisch, but here are some pictures
I have to buy a lot more of this yummy thread first, but I think this might look real nice. Not sure how to do the stems. Stitching, too? Maybe with the same stitch or something completely different? Felt?
Unfortunately the fabric I used for the background is an off cut piece and I have no idea what it is exactly. I do remember where I bought it, so I will have to go there again and hopefully get some more. It seems to be a linen/polyester mix, but I am not sure.
