TAST Week 15 Oyster Stitich – Details 234 and 235 April 11th, 2007

oyster stitch in the visual journalI like Oyster Stitch but when I sat down with my visual journal I found that my mind was playing with ‘Oysters’ instead of the stitch, did you know that Australia has a BIG Oyster, not one of the better big things lol, I will have to get another block for mum’s quilt pieced so that I can combine the stitch with the memories, the Big Prawn referred to in the link to the big oyster is in my home town where mum still lives.

Back to Oyster stitch, I did use it one one seam today, a simple zig zag variation which I have left unbeaded because it will probably end up as the background to a button cluster.

The other seam is buttonhole stitch done over herringbone stitch trimmed on one side with straight stitches and lace flowers.
