This is so pretty Annette! I love those beads on the butterfly stitch, and the crochet trim and basically all of the fan! I have a quilt in progress but I don't think it will be a crazy quilt, far too much stitching! You have such patience. I shall have to search out that book, very useful. Barbara xx
Thanks, Barbara. Yes, it's a great crochet book. I found a Dutch translation of her book with crocheted flowers a few weeks ago in our library, more great patterns for my CQ!
Gorgeous! (I really need to let my mom teach me to crochet...) Thank you so much for sharing a link to the detailed photos. Your seams are all so wonderfully stitched. The buttonholed cable chain stitch is still one of my favorites, but I remember it taking me forever. Yours is lovely. I love the way you dressed up the rope stitch seam, too!
Thanks, Renee. I do hope you take the time to learn crochet, you can make so many small items for your CQ!
What a good idea to marry the seam embroidery with a crochet trim! It adds not only eye candy but structure, too.
Thanks, Queenie. Your comment makes me think about your buttonholed weddingrings! :-)
a very pretty piece and the crochet works so well
Thanks, Margaret. I bought the book a few months ago, but when I saw that trim I knew it would be great for this seam! Luckily I found the matching crochet thread recently.
What a great idea and nice to add some crocheting along with all the embroidery.
Thanks, Jenny. I always enjoy making my own trims.
A lovely use of crochet stitches, it is always nice to mix and match different crafts together.
Thanks, Susan. You're so right, I always enjoy mixing different crafts.
