TAST - Detached Chain - Week 7

This is my tag for week 7 of TAST, the Detached Chain a/k/a Lazy Daisy.

I pulled the colors from the variegated thread I used on the tree and the little butterflies at the top. These are kind of Easter colors too, but a little brighter than what I used before.

I thought this stitch worked great for these tiny butterflies, but I especially liked the interest it gave to the strip of rick rack. Rick rack isn't usually a favorite of mine, but I do like this border!

Of course I had to add a tree created with only lazy daisy stitches. The stitch also worked well for the little lavender dragonfly under the word 'chain' don't you think?

I am a little behind in post this tag here and will be posting the tag for week 8 within a day or two. It is the Chain Stitch a/k/a Tambour Stitch.

The colours are lovely on this. I love the treee and the butterflies, and of course the little dragonfly I can see in the bottom corner.

I'm not a huge lover of ric rac either but this doesn't look like it until you inspect it closely. Looks great!!
