100 details for 100 days Day 97

Day 97

I am having severe problems with my internet connection this morning. This post has taken me two hours to prepare. As a result I have not been able to to do my usual morning whip around but lets hope the detail at least will publish.

Today the detail featured is another example of using rick rack in crazy quilting. It has been attached with zig zag chain using DMC pearl 5 thread. between the V’s of the braid I have stitched three straight stitches topped with seed beads.

100 details for 100 days Day 96

Day 96

We really are on the count down toward the end of the series now. This seam treatment started life as a piece hand dyed lace that was in the form of a row hearts. As you can see the hearts are upside down and have three detached chain stitches attached to them. A seed bead is in the middle of the cluster of chain stitches.

At the V of the heart is a row of larger black beads. I chose the same thread that I worked the detached chain stitches on the V of the heart, to work around the black beads in Fly Stitch tied with a detached chain stitch.

Detached chain stitches with a long tail are stitched either side of the black beads and a bead which looks like a cluster of four seed beads was stitched between the detached chain stitches.

100 details for 100 days Day 95

Day 95

 

With only 5 days left in this series it is timely to remind everyone about the challenge next year. “Take a Stitch Tuesdays” will be a weekly challenge which encourages people to take a stitch and push it in various ways.

 

Exploration and interpretation of stitches and how they might be used is the aim of this challenge. Each week I am going to feature a stitch, experiment with it. Anyone who wants to join in can do the same, interpreting the stitch as they choose. People can stitch on anything they choose, anyway they choose and commitment is flexible. Anyone can join at any time. People can join in and stitch as their life dictates.

 

Each week I will link to who has done what. In other words, as I have done in this series a list of links to current activity will be in the post of the week, which means readers can travel the sites to see what everyone has done.

The start date is January 2nd 2007. Drop me an email or leave a comment if you want to go on a list of people who want a reminder about it closer to the time.

As you can see there are two seams featured today. Both seams are made up of of arrangements of detached chain stitches and straight stitch.

One grouping worked in thread the same weight as DMC pearl 8 is along side lace. The other worked in thread the same weight as DMC pearl 5 is worked along side a fine cord which has been couched down

Both seam treatments are quick simple and effective.
