Once again I am sharing my stitching progress as promised. I hope folks reading about the process find it interesting. I always feel hesitant to share a half done crazy quilt block because I leave it until the very end of the process to do the beading and add buttons. I work most of my embroidery first, because if I add beads as I go I have the constant frustration of catching my working thread on beads and buttons! So often a piece looks half done until the end when there is a flourish of beading and it comes together.
As you can see a little progress has been made. If you want to compare my last work in progress report for my hussif was here I have laid some foundation stitches of herringbone, Arrow stitch, Cretan stitch and plan to add more to these. They are the first layer of multi stitch rows. I am still thinking about them. I have also worked a seam with drooping flower like things. I worked them using a silk thread that is the same thickness as cotton perle #8 using 15 wraps of cast on stitch. They were slow to work but satisfying.
