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.
