100 details for 100 days Day 60

Day 60

Todays featured seam embellishment was started with a foundation row of buttonhole stitch which was worked in a thread the same weight as DMC pearl 8.

On one side I worked a small caston stitch and on the other three Bullion stitches. Both these stitches were worked in a thread the same weight as DMC 12. Seed beads were then added to the seam to finnish it off.

I have a few tips for working bullion stitch which may be useful if you look at bullions and feel faint.

Drawspace

Do you want to improve your drawing skills? For those who are interested in quietly developing the ability to draw you may like to investigate Drawspace and take advantage of their free online drawing lessons.

Drawspace hosts dozens of drawing lessons suitable for beginners through to those with advanced drawing skills. You have to join which only takes a few minutes and even then you are only able to download a tutorial every two weeks, but the lessons are rated and those that I have read are useful.

Many of the lessons are ideal for textile practitoners who have an interest in keeping a visual journal but are fearful of that word drawing. You could quietly build this skill in a visual journal, chipping away at it every couple of weeks.
