TAST Week 3 Detached Chain


And again, a fun piece. It is all detached chain stitch and is 12cm x 13cm. I loved the thread I used mostly. It´s a hand dyed variegated thread from a german company "Tentakulum". The threads they sell are sooo beautiful, but it is difficult to buy them as they don´t have an online shop. This is "Painter´s Thread Silk". I used up a hole skein on this piece. Oh, that felt sooo goooooooood.....

I also got me a little treat and bought 8 of the Double Trouble series books. One is about handstitching on machine stitching and vice versa. So I know what is on my to-do-list for next week.

DH is watching a movie about King Arthur right now, so a little time for the embellisher. I should have started on the Needlefeltchallenge some days ago...

I love the threads from Tentaklum. I always buy whatever they have on special at the Sticheleien in Michelstadt each year! I have a bunch of Rayon, but it's hard to work with because it frays easily.
