Yes, I am managing some time for my crazy quilting but must admit more limited than I would like. I am pleased to say that I am working on the last of three blocks for this project. My goal is to have this completed for this winter as I want to start a new project in 2017.
Since I re-introduced my silk perle earlier this week I thought I would show how I use this. The seam treatment in the upper right used the silk perle. I started with a feather stitch and added some detached chains which were further embellished with some French knots. Since the fabric was very plain I added some randomly scattered seed beads.
The seam treatment in the middle is a base of cretan stitch with the addition of three detached chains to create a floral center. The cretan is silk perle and the detached chains are perle cotton. I further embellished with a seed bead and a straight stitch at the base. A fun section to stitch. Have a great weekend and more on Monday.
