Pink Flower Seam


More than a month had passed since I last worked on a crazy quilt block.  Though I have done a fair amount of embroidery, I missed seam work.  Last night, I picked up a block and put this together.

Along the bottom, there is some tiny white rickrack attached with DMC white size 12 perle cotton floss.



Next, a green shade of Anchor size 8 perle cotton was used to create a buttonhole seam (with uneven lengths), followed by lazy daisy stitches on both sides of the longer stems.

Pink Anchor size 8 perle cotton finished the seam.  Two straight stitches and a French knot topped the shorter stems.  Three lazy daisy stitches topped the longer stems.

I feel SO much better now.  It is funny how stitching a pretty little seam can fill me with contentment.


Now I am off to check out Day 3 of the Tammy 4 all Seasons Blog Hop over at Sew We Quilt.

Thanks for stopping by!

I have to admit I was giggling when I saw this - not at your beautiful needlework skills but because I was playing with a ric rac seam just yesterday. Great minds?
