Some more seams

There has been more progress on the latest project....


Today, for a little break from just looking at finished seam treatments, how about I share a couple of the patterns?


This one is made up of straight stitches (black & red) and woven thread (blue).



This is a modified chevron stitch (red) and straight stitches (black and green) and French Knots.

Cross stitches (black); straight stitches (red & green) and French Knots.



If you'd like to see more of these seam treatments (and perhaps use them in your own work), simply click on 'seam treatments' in my sidebar.  

- There's a really cute crocheted kitty bed pattern HERE (scroll down).  It's worth going to see if only to see the adorable kitty model!  There's another version HERE (scroll down for the pattern).

- Many of us are working at downsizing our stashes and perhaps might find some of the tips HERE to be of interest.  If nothing else, have a look at her super-organized shelves!!

- THIS is a really cute little zippered pouch which could have so many uses (AND it's a great stash-buster!!).

- Oh my goodness!  THIS made me sit up and take notice....my favourite colour is blue and so of course I was blown away.  There's a link to the pattern at the bottom.

Aah....purging your fabric stash....getting rid of the fabrics that one doesn't love. My problem is that I love all my fabrics. =) I am loving the black embroidery on these seams, Mary Anne.

I find your stitches so intriguing. I think I'm going to try some of them as tangles. Those links have some wonderful info and that blue and white afghan - love it!

Your seam treatments are sew beautiful and complex. Then when you share each stitch it looks doable. Kitties are so cute and I adore them. Love that BLUEtiful crochet. Interesting quote to remember. <3

Beautiful work Mary Ann. The black thread is a good contrast.

Love the seam treatments and the kitty beds. I know a certain cat that might like one of those.
