100 details for 100 days Day 29

100 details for 100 days Day 29

Yesterday was a simple treatment, today I thought I would throw in something different. This detail is Palestrina stitch worked on a curve with the arms extended to form a twiggy like growth on the block. It is worked in DMC pearl 5.

My morning round up today has found that Hideko Ishida has completed another block.

Barbara of Thinking Out Loud has fallen in love with silk ribbon.

Pat Winter of Gatherings has posted details to her blog of using cretan stitch

Allison Aller has beaded some lace

Charlene of When This You See, Remember Me has some new details up on her blog.

Annie Whitsed of Annies Crazy World has ooddles of spiders and their webs to show you

Pam Kellogg of Kitty & Me Designs has a charted design for an ivy motif.

Not technically part of this series but of interest for anyone who is following this series, is a post by Lillian of crazyseoulsister which summarises a recent discussion over on the hand embroidery group at yahoo on valuable embroidery lessons learnt . It is well worth reading.

For anyone just swinging by this series of posts are listed under 100 details for 100 days in this blog. Over on Flickr it is associated with the Crazyquilting Group and photos are tagged 100detailsin100days


  1. This stitch is great looking….the palestrina stitch and your diagram of it is perfect for me….it reminds of the double hitch used in needle tatting…..(not that i do needle tatting). This is right up my alley being so dimensional . Thank you for having this series and thank you for your stitch illlustrations. Being left handed i often find that i have to closely scrutinize the actual workings of the stitch as i follow a diagram and hope that i can “translate the handedness” correctly. I trhink i am also left-brained………ggggggg, possibly as in “left-behind” as opposed to logical.

    I am not able to follow along at any where near the pace everyone seems to be going…but one of these days i will start the series.quite possibly with this stitch, which i think is going to be great substitute for a buttonhole stitch.
