5th November, 2012 SCCs Round Robin
I used some Cottage Garden cotton Perle 12 variegated thread to work the feathered diamond trail with the rosebuds being worked in a different variegated perle 12 colourway. Am very happy with the result. I have laced chain stitch with some Colourstreams Ophir silk thread.
I think that the good crochet cotton could be dyed and used for the same effect.
The spray of flowers has been worked with my handdyed silk ribbon for the silk flower spray, YLI silk thread for the greenery, Colourstreams "salt bush" for the bullion leaves, and Madiera thread for the buttonhole flowers.
