Often while searching around the net for embroidery stitches, I come across stitches which are not commonly used.Many a times I just bookmark the page and leave it for later reference .Of late a teeny weeny idea has been taking shape in my mind-why not document it as I come across -like some of you do.And guess what?? I've started it!! -unlike all my earlier ideas which do sprout :) in my head but never grow.And I've decided to call this effort of mine ROSE - Recording Old Stitches in Embroidery . The stitches may not be that old,but I like the name :)
The first stitch that goes into ROSE is Tulip Stitch. I had never heard of it before,but when I saw it I was surprised-it was just a variation of detached chain.Many of you might have attempted it while trying variations of detached chain.
How to ...
Stitch a lazy daisy first .Then come up on one side and pass the needle through the tacking stitch of lazy daisy and go down at the other end.
Iam not trying to create any beautiful embroidered piece.Iam trying to learn and to put the stitches down in one place for quick reference.So don't expect any perfection in the work done.
Attempted in multiple colors.By the way, if you extend the loop part a little more you get the Berry Stitch which is also called the double detached chain (purple and green bud above)
