This seam treatment was meant to make the braid less heavy. It is the upper left corner of the block from a encrusted RR ,I am in. The block belongs to Leslie.
Leslie added the braid when she pieced the block.
This seam is on the top of the block. It is feather stitch, done with brown, buds/ berries done with the oyster stitch and leaves with silk ribbon. The little bird is m.o.p.
Seam 1 and 2 I made before Christmas and today I made seam 3 with the bell-flowers. sre.
The stem is made from chain stitch and stem-stitch.
I sewed silver glass seed beads on it. I thought this are dew drops in the morning........
I think when you click on the photo to enlarge you can see them.
It was a joy for me to work on this block, I like those colors: dusty pink, ivory and moss green, very much.
Maybe I will do a bit more on this block later........
