As you can see todays detail features a piece of tatting which has been used to along a seam.
At the top of the tatting there are clusters of three detached chain stitches worked in a thread the same weight as DMC 8. A bead has been stitched to base. Beads have also been stitched to the tatting. Also if you look carefully there is some straight stitches embellishing the tatting.
Next to the tatting there is another seam which has been worked in a silk thread the same weight as DMC pearl 8. It consists of Feathered Up and down Buttonhole with a Bullion knot stitched between the arms of the buttonhole.
I don’t have time for my morning round up as I am supposed to be throwing stuff in the car as this weekend we are off to the Kangaroo valley folk festival. I have no idea what it will be like as this is the first year it has been run but it is in a nice part of the country and full circle the Australian Celtic band that Jerry plays in has a gig so it should be fun. We will be back possibly Monday night but don’t fret as I have posts lined up ready to go. I will have to approve any comments that are left when I get back.

Came across your site quite by accident and became intrigued. I’ve gone all the way back to the beginning and printed out the seams I wanted to use as references the next time I made a “heart” for a friend. I’ve been developing my techniques for about ten years and was thrilled to see there are others out there who enjoy the same sort of stitchery. I’ll keep checking back to see what wonders you next present to us out here in cyberspace! Keeping myself in stitches, Jan
