100 details for 100 days Day 59

Day 59

This small detail on a crazy quilt block is worked along the side of a wide ribbon. On one side I worked two rows of Herringbone stitch on top of each other. One row is thin and the other fat and both rows are tied at the cross with a little straight stitch.

Alternating along the top of of the fat row is some novelty beads, which are in the shape of a butterfly. These are placed between some lace floral motifs. Actually they are floral motifs that have been cut in half as I wanted them to be really small. They came from a larger strip of lace.

Inside the petal shape I stitched a seed bead. Between each petal I worked a straight stitch and topped it with a seed bead.

On the other side of the ribbon I worked a row of buttonhole stitch and used the same trick of using small lace motifs. These flowers have a seed bead in the middle and that is it. Threads used on this embellishment are all the same weight as DMC pearl 8.

Annie’s miniatures are always a delight. Today she has featured one of my favourites. A tiny pair of rubber thongs.
