Crazy for Crazy
Working these crazy quilt blocks is so enjoyable I can hardly put the work down once I get started.
So progress has been good:
- Floral sequins were framed with Herringbone Stitch to hold down a ribbon.
- The holes in the hand dyed lace were filled with small red beads.
- An undulating line of Sunday School Stitch #59 Knotted Running Stitch was actually worked last week, but now holds flowers of TAST #68 Slipped Detached Chain, and were further decorated with Fargo Roses (ribbon embroidery) which I learned from Sharon Boggon's book.
- I made a thin braid in a teal and gold yarn on my Lucet (picture shows a purple wool, though).
- Then there is a line of TAST #55 Buttonholed Herringbone Stitch.
- There is some Asian Cord that I couched down in the shape of a stem.
- From the stem there are some TAST #22 Buttonhole Wheels (most befitting as this is the TAST stitch of the week!)
Work in progress is the upper left corner where I am using a bit of dyed canvas as a base for some Cross Stitch. The canvas will be cut into a bar once the stitching is complete. There is silk underneath.
There is more work to be added, and that will be shown next week.
Before that though, there is some more progress to report.
