. . . was Janny’s theme for the fabric book page swap at Fibre Fever. A great excuse to use the matryoshka fabric I bought at the Albert Cuyp many years ago.
I emphasized the dots at right the side of the green fabric with French knots in two threads of stranded floss. The scallops are chain stitches in DMC perle #5 color variations. On the red fabric I stitched detached chain stitches in perle #5 and decorated them with red sequins and beads. Both seams are stitched with the help of Sharon’s CQ templates.
The feather stitch at the left is done in Caron Wildflowers and decorated with beads. At the bottom I stitched a barely visible Cretan stitch in Tentakulum painters thread perle #12.
I attached the lace with cross stitches in Caron Wildflowers. The pattern of the crochet flower came from a book from the library, but I forgot to note the title.
You can follow my blog on facebook too, I hope to meet you there.
