Fortunately I had an opportunity to sit in front of the tele Sunday afternoon and finish off my detached chain piece for this week’s TAST. Anne of Green Gables (the sequel) was on all afternoon and I just love that movie. The scenery is just gorgeous. Dreaming now of one day visiting Prince Edward Island. Dreaming……………..
The inspiration for this week’s piece came from a very old (won’t say how old) doily I embroidered when I was about 11 years old. The ‘lazy daisy’ stitch was done in six strands and when I finally learned how to do fine crochet at about 30 years old I put the edging on it (very badly…but my fine crochet did improve!!!) I use it from time to time on my dressing table.
Here is this weeks piece which I have dubbed “Bloom, Butterfly & Bird”. It is entirely stitched in detached chain stitch. (Quite a challenge).
Drop into Sharon Boggon’s blog, Pintangle, HERE and see what other people have done with this lovely stitch.’
I just love doing lazy daisy
