Day 84 in 100 Crazy Quilt details another seam which I first covered with a thin, hand dyed, piece of lace. On one side I worked a straight stitch in a groups of three in cotton perle #8 and then added a small flower like shape using caston stitch. This was also worked using cotton perle #8. I added a bead to the middle of each caston stitch.
At the bottom of the lace I worked a row of detached chain stitches in groups of two. These were worked in a silk thread. I added a straight stitch between them and then two Bullion stitches in a cotton perle #8 thread.
Below the bullions I added two straight stitches finished with two French knots worked in a finer cotton perle #12 thread.
