My Band Sampler 34 – Detail 581 March 9th, 2008

Another buzy day, including such dreaded jobs as defrosting and cleaning out the fridge but all the work has been worth it because the house looks good and even feels a little organized…My son arrived this evening and it has been lovely to see him.

Buttonhole stitch with floating beads

I have used this idea before with straight stitches but it works just as well with buttonhole stitch…I have used a fine thread (2 strands cotton floss) so that I could use a small enough needle to fit throught the beads which are threaded on as you work the buttonhole stitch…As I worked the seam the black beads were looking a bit flat so I added the red beads to give the seam a little zing…The beads move along the stitches and are fun to play with.
