To my delight and surprise, yesterdays announcement about this series created quite a reaction. I had thought that people would read them and enjoy them but had no idea it would provoke a stitch-a-long.
Candida in São Paulo, Brazil has also worked the seam treatment and put an image up on her flickr site. While you are there, check out this wonderful block she did as part of the joggles class I presented early in the year.
As a slightly different challenge Annie Whitsed of Annies Crazy World has started to post 100 details for 100 days too. So there will be more daily eye candy. I hope this idea spreads too as it will make everyones morning coffee or evening surf most enjoyable.
If people are joining in, even if its only occasionally drop me an email or leave a comment I will link to you so people can surf the different interpretations.
I was asked via email if these articles will stay online – yes they will. Book mark the category and you will always find it The category is here. As I said yesterday feel free to print them out and use them.
Now for todays seam treatment which is actually two as I could not crop it to show just one. I have chosen something simple so it is suitable for everyone. As you can see it is a seam treatment of 3 detached chain stitches simply attached to rick rack on each hump. the thead used is actually hand dyed crochet cotton which is the same thickness as Pearl 5 thread.
The other is a line of quarter buttonhole wheels worked in DMC Pearl 5 thread and a samll bead has been added to each centre. The back ground fabric was some cutwork which I stitched in as I made the block and beaded.
While I am at it, I have been neglectful as I have been meaning to highlight Lillian’s blog Crazyseoulsister Lillian lives in Korea and does some lovely crazy quilting work so while you are in the mood do check her out.
