Indian Edging, Needle Weaving Bar and Triple Palestrina are crowding the Freeform Embroidery.
Crazy for Crazy
The paisley got a grid and some sprigs.
After I showed the two buttonholed rings last Wednesday, I got a lot of questions about how I managed to interlock them. That was an easy trick! I simply joined two of these spring key rings, and stitched the Buttonhole Stitch around each of them.
As you can see I couched them down with the same Perle thread, but will redo that with something wider - maybe ribbon embroidery ribbon - to cover the joints.
Log Cabin Challenge
I have cut the fabric into strips and now have a pile of logs.
There are also a few sheets of gold fabric, fused to interfacing. That gold will be used only for the centre piece, golden fire in the hearth!
Do you think I will ever be able to stitch as fast as Yoko Saito?
