This hand embroidered detail is a seam on block 79.
The area of the patch is covered with Silk Ribbon Embroidery. I filled the area with woven roses and leaf stitch, then sprinkled French knots throughout. The French knots are worked in hand dyed rayon ribbon floss
Along the edge of the seam I worked sets of 3 detached chain stitches in a burgundy cotton Perle #8 thread. At the centre of each set I stitched a small pearl bead.
