I feel I need a drum roll to indicate that this is an exciting moment as this post marks the half way mark in the series. I had no idea when I thought of doing it that this series would prove so popular, but it has so without further ado here is today’s detail.
A foundation row of Chevron stitch worked in DMC pearl 5 thread, started off this seam embellishment. I then worked straight stitches in a different coloured silk thread of the same weight between the V sections of the chevron at the base of the row. At the top of these I stitched a seed bead. At the base of these stitches I added a heart shaped novelty bead tucked upside down in the V.
Above the seam of stiches I stitched a row of buttons and from the middle of each button I worked a loop of seed beads. They draw the eye to that corner of the block and are a bit different as the treatment is a little unexpected. This is the 8 inch block it comes from.
