Stitch No 118 Bead Buttonhole
I am coming to the end of this piece of material, only one more line after this stitch. As this is an outiside row I used a perle 5 thread to define the edge. This was a nice easy stitch.
But looking at the whole piece I decided that I hated the black ticking lines. Far too gothic in appearance. So I have decided to stitch over every line using past TAST stitches. I have chosen chain, stem, palestrina and Portuguese stem stitches to do this. The threads are a combination of silks and some stranded cotton. Lots of stitching and I still have lots to go but I do think it is starting to lose that dark look.
Now I have to decide what I will use for the coming stitches.
Stitch No 119 Trellis Stitch
Well I did this back in 2010 and I quiet like this example plus I don't think it would look good in the final row I have on the current sampler. Then again I had forgotten those bird experiments I did, no it isn't right.
There are other examples of this stitch over at pintangle also the instructions about how to stitch it.
