Another feather stitch spray, this time done with perle cotton and using a small chain stitch on the ends of some of the sprays and a little bead on other ends. Fills up some space nicely and lets you use beads (always a good thing). If you notice, I always try to use contrasting colors in my embroidery threads so that the stitching shows up against the background of the block. You're going to all the trouble of doing this embroider, you want it to show up and not blend in.
Offering No. 2:
A small piece of lace that is beaded. This is fairly wide lace, about 4 inches I believe, but a little piece like this adds a lot of interest to an oddly shaped patch.
And last but not least:
I hope these examples have helped some of you with filling up the patches you need to do on your swaps, etc.
Once again, thank you all for your comments and for visiting. Tomorrow (hopefully) I'll have some pics of what I did over the weekend -- when I actually worked on stuff for ME.
