Work In Progress Wednesday - October 15

Last Wednesday I had no progress to share, but today I want show you what 
I added to block 5 for my Crazy White quilt in the last few days.
I added beads to the combo of herringbone and Cretan stitch.
The buttonholed herringbone stitch needed something extra, luckily I had some pretty beads in my stash, . . .
 . . . which I attached between the bows.
The last seam at the bottom needed this pretty flower ribbon, which I decorated with beads in the centre of the flowers. The charm just landed under the ribbon and it looked alright. I hope it doesn’t fly to the spiderweb!
Work In Progress Wednesday is a support group to encourage people to complete languishing projects, Works In Slow Progress or UFO’s.

  2. I have some of those Miyuki beads, too. The hole is off centre, right? The charm will probably stay closer to the nectar of the flowers than to the spider's web so it should be safe!!!

    1. Yes, the hole of the Miyuki beads is of centre. They look like little waterdrops between the bows of the buttonholed herringbone. And I'm sure you're right about the charm!
