Details 438 and 439 December 8th, 2007

unfinished seamThis seam treatment is done with Fly Stitches topped with a row of Stem Stitch. When I originally did the seam I did the fly stitches in groups of 3…

I have now conected the groups with additional fly Stitches and then used gold metalic thread to add a Pistil Stitch (which is the week 49 TAST Stitch), to each point to give it a fringe like edge.

I wanted to do more to this seam then just add a bead to each of Herringbone Stitch but the stitches where to close together so I have just put a bead on most of the stitches but have added interest by alternating them with the Detached Chain Stitches and red beads.

    I like the fly stitch seam both ways – the original looked a little like lace hanging down, and that appealed to me, too. The herringbone stitch looks wonderful with the alternating stitches and beads. You always come up with such creative combinations!
