I’m not one for beads, don’t do Crazy Patchwork and don’t usually use them on things, so this was something new. I actually like it a lot, and could see it being used on various things……for instance around the join of the top and bottom fabrics of the pincushions below. The green sample is done without the bead – two rows from opposite directions, with the gap filled with some detached chain stitches and French knots.
Someone asked what I plan to do with these samples. I would love to have a long sampler like Sharon B’s – click here to see some of it – but really think I would not get to 45 feet like her one! I expect these will be pinned together and just kept for reference rather than show…..so the wonky words are OK, I can’t be bothered counting threads and doing it properly, but they serve their purpose.
