Did you know that the Lazy Daisy Stitch has a split personality? Yes, this sweet embroidery stitch may look loopy and easy going. And sure, the Lazy Daisy is useful for making charming little flowers like those in the Love at First Stitch project in Joyful Stitching.
But secretly, in the back alleys of the embroidery world, it is know as the Detached Chain Stitch.
When parading around as the Detached Chain Stitch, the Lazy Daisy may be scattered to the wind. Carefree and optimistic, they are useful for texture building or to indicate leaves on a tree top. Here are directions for the Lazy Daisy Stitch or the Detached Chain Stitch. (It all depends on how you feel.)
And speaking of carefree and optimistic, here is the lucky winner of a set of felt shapes to play with: Suzanne M. Like the felt used in the Love at First Stitch project, may it feel like you are stitching through butter. Congratulations!
