Another one!

Here's another seam treatment for you to play with...


This little motif works well as a seam treatment and also can be used on its own as a little flower or a snowflake.

I used embroidery floss (red on diagram) and metallic gold (blue on diagram).  Gold bead in the center.


Today your quote is from T.D. Jakes.... "If you can't figure out your purpose, find out your passion.  For your passion will lead you right into your purpose"

    LOVE the borders yesterday and today! How fun!
    Love the close-up picture on your banner, also. You can really see the terrific stitching and talent that went into that piece. How did you fasten the white birds to the fabric??

  3. Morning, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Shirley yesterday, beautiful work. I started following her and blamed you for getting interested in crazy quilting.
    I enjoy listing to TD Jakes from time to time , but don't see him often anymore.
    This is a sweet stitch, of course I haven't a clue where to start. But I did get a stitching book. We'll see what happens.
    Blessings

  5. Tonia is sooo funny. She doesn't know YOU got me started on CQ too...I'll be sure to tell her. Pretty little seam shared today. I believe that quote is pretty on target too.

    Nice seam treatment! I saw it on Renee's blog and came to see your original. Thanks for sharing. I don't use metallic thread often, because I have to use such short pieces, but I might rethink that.

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
