Crazy for Crazy
The Dorset button as well as the one from my stash are on. So are the beads and a number of embroidered areas.
Have a look:
I used the SSS#69 Point Russe Stitch but added more legs, then used needle weaving in two different threads. It made a nice fan. At the bottom arch I added a cut stone that was so glaring I just had to calm it down with some Shisha Stitch.
I have also made two butterflies out of Tripple Chain and Bullion Knot Stitch.
Before I start a new crazy quilt block, I will have to make a birthday card and thought I would use the pattern and instructions from Sachiko Morimoto's book on 'Drawing herbs and flowers with Stumpwork' (that translation of the title is mine).
I don't know how much progress there will be to report next week.
My friend CrazyQstitcher has worked all the stitches in the book, have a look at her lavender.
