That is very lovely, and inspiring too!

I have an answer for you about the chain stitch.  There is a way to make chains on the front side without having to embroider them. 

You have the working yarn on the backside of the fabric, and insert the hook, pull up a loop, insert the hook where you want the end of the chain, pull up a loop and pull through the loop on the hook.  It's pretty much like slip stitching through the fabric so the chains lie on top.  I find this goes faster than using an embroidery chain stitch with a needle.

And the textile dork in me can't help adding that this was a popular embroidery stitch at one time called tambour work.  The hooks used look like sharpened crochet hooks, so they can go through the fabric.  And some crochet history theories claim that crochet developed from tambour embroidery when people just started leaving the fabric and hoop out of the equation.
