Sorry for missing last week's posting. We've had a few weather issues here and in between fighting the weather, crazy drivers and work, I just didn't have it in me. So moving on ----- here's another seam embellishment from Christy.
This is using the cretan stitch and then adding detached lazy daisy flowers and a nice size bead in the center. As you can see, this seam embellishment takes up some "real estate" on the block and would be good to use if you have a rather largish patch you need to decorate. If you go back to prior Seam Embellishment posts, you'll find links to get to the video library of stitches for any help you need. I confess, I love the cretan stitch, but can't quite do it myself. I used to feel bad about admitting I didn't know how to do certain stitches until Miss Carole Samples made the same confession about all the stitches in her Treasury book. Of course, Miss Carole has the excuse of she's busy writing the book (g).
While I was not posting here, I have been working on things. I got Block 3 done in my Birds of a Feather quilt and also the next block prepped. I told you all I needed a break from all those miles of skinny stems so I jumped ahead in the book and finished this block. This the only block without miles of skinny stems. So go practice your stitches and make something beautiful!
