100 details for 100 days Day 94

Day 94

 

The detail for today features a row of tied Herringbone was worked in DMC pearl 5 thread. At the base of this I stitched some sequins.

At the top of this row is a line of Oyster stitch worked in rayon ribbon floss, which has been topped with a small pearl bead

The other seam embellishment starts with a widely spaced buttonhole stitch. Into the corner of the L is three detached chain stitches worked in DMC pearl 5. Using a finer thread I tucked another detached chain stitch on the outside corner of the L at a 45 degree angle.

At the top of the buttonhole stitches in a finer thread I also worked some detached chain stitches which were finished off with a tiny bead. In a finer thread still, I added two straight stitches.

With one week to go in this series featuring 100 details in 100 days the detail for today features a cluster of buttons which below them have a row of alternating barred chain worked in DMC pearl 3. A pearl bead has been stitched at the end of the barred chain arms.

Also radiating from the button cluster is a row of Herringbone was worked in DMC pearl 5 thread which I then laced using the same lacing technique that is used in Twisted lattice band. In this case I used a fine rayon knitting ribbon. Pearl beads have also been stitched to the row.

Above the buttons is some lace. The edge of this has been embellished with straight stitch topped with small white seed beads.

Today, I am featuring another detail on a crazy quilt block which contains a number of seam embellishments in the one area. The first seam runs diagonally across the image on the left is created with two rows of Chevron stitch worked back to back in DMC pearl 5 thread.

The seam is then further embellished with groups of two detached chain stitches worked side by side tucked into the V of the chevron. A bugle bead and a seed bead is stitched between them.

Towards the middle of the detail is Open cretan stitch worked in a silk thread which is the same weight as DMC pearl 5. Using the same thread I tucked detached chain stitches in between the arms of the cretan stitch and added a little black seed bead at the base.

The top diagonal seam embellishment starts with buttonhole stitch. On one side I added three straight stitches with a seed bead stitched at the base. From the top I hung a Japanese Ribbon stitch. I don’t have directions to work this stitch online. It is on my to do list but you can find directions for Ribbon Stitch here.

The final thin row is made up of Palestrina Stitch above some lace which has been embellished with detached chain stitches and beads.
