Daisy

 . . . is the name of my new dotee doll. I gave her a necklace of beaded herringbone stitch, which is TAST stitch 125. I didn’t use Sharon’s tutorial, but one of the samples in the RSN Bead Embroidery book by Shelley Cox. The thread goes through the bead twice. I used 2 threads of stranded floss.
I stitched feather stitch on her body with 2 threads of stranded floss and decorated it with small bugle beads.
TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, an embroidery challenge at Pin Tangle.

  2. A charming doll with a nice necklace! The beads sit very securely in this kind of Beaded Herringbone stitch.
