This week stitch was a great chance to mingle :), using other stitches to make more of a border. The ribbons were couched down and there must be heaps of ways to do this. I combined Bonnet stitch with fly, blanket, chain,cross, detached buttonhole and bullions. The large border was stitched using a silver chain crochet thread.
I always feel as if I need more time, do you know what I mean; not more time because what I’ve done is incomplete but because there are so many more variations I have not discivered, yet, but as the workmen are coming shortly to rip out the old boiler and other fun things, I will definately have to close :))
I have included a couple of detail shots(although they aren’t that good. I hope it helps you to see what I was doing. The truth is, I just make it up as I go!
I really like the threaded bonnet stitch and could see that making a wonderful filling
for larger shapes.
