TAST Detached Chain

I am enjoying the single stitches in TAST. It is good to try extensions of a stitch. I wondered if I could claim the wateringcan handle as an open detached chain.

The top line has a different filler in each Vee.

The silver/green design is in my Mildred Graves Ryan book of stitching and called Tete-de-boeuf, being a combination of detached chain and straight stitches. I can't add one of the accent marks for the word Tete.LOL

I like your use of the stitch for raindrops, and also the white tips of an ocean wave. Great idea and it looks really good.

That's marvelous! I really appreciate seeing what other people can do with a stitch, especially when it's one that didn't particularly inspire me.
