Detached chain stitch

Well, I hate to say it, but I found myself distinctly uninspired with this stitch. I couldn’t really think of anything interesting to do with it. So, I chose simply to test out some different sizes and heights to get varied effects.

Here’s a bit of wide and narrow stitches.

And another selection of playing with patterns in some pretty metallic thread. I did some interweaving as well to see what that looked like.

Neither thread I selected shows up all that well against the fabric, unfortunately. Just another example of my lack of inspiration, I think. I probably should have taken the time to go look at other people’s playing before trying anything, but found it hard to find the time. Maybe next week, I can add in something more interesting with detached chain in combination with something else. By itself, it doesn’t seem to be truly interesting.

    Your pictures gave me an insight into this stitch that I didn’t have before. I hadn’t realized that if I had open ends, it’s really just a feather stitch or a fly stitch!

    It looks like you had a long week, too, and didn’t get things posted! Thank goodness there are more weeks in this year, as I’m officially behind now. =)
