After yesterdays hurried post this morning is written with a little more leisure. Today we have another cluster of buttons which has been stitched at the edge of a doily.
Two seams can be seen the first runs diagonally along the top of the photo is made of sheaf stitch. I don’t have directions to work this sheaf stitch online – it is on my to do list but you can find directions for sheaf stitch here.
Along the bottom of the detail is a row of Open cretan stitch worked in DMC pearl 5 thread. In the spaces created by the cretan stitch I worked two chain stitches topped with a tiny bead. Between them is a seed bead.
My morning read of the blogs revealed that Katie of Katie’s New place has started stitching some of the details!
Annie Whitsed of Annies Crazy World has featured more stitch samples on her stumpwork sampler
Karen South of Karen South’s Crazy Quilting World has posted some details of her latest block
Debbie of Needle Lil More Time to Sew has featured some more details from her work.
Pam Kellogg of Kitty & Me Designs has published a teacup motif which she has generously provided free. This motif is a particular favourite as I am ‘collecting’ tea cups for a project.
Rissa of Rissas Pieces has published another in her series of alphabets that can be used in embroidery.
