Hi All ya'll........sorry it has been so long since I shared with you. I have been working on a Beaded Poem Challenge for my Yahoo list CQI and I can't share it just yet since we will be voting on the different works submitted, so will share it once the voting is done.
Here are a couple more tidbits from the Snow & Ice Christmas Stocking.
This treatment is one I saw in Carole Samples book Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches on page 97 you will find all kinds of Holbein-stitch designs, this one is on the upper left of the page. The white thread came in my Treasure Club packet from Evening Star Designs and I have to confess I don't know the name of it because it has grown legs and walked off somewhere. Sigh. The blue snowflake/star is 2 strands of rayon thread, with blue and pink seed beads.
Oh BTW, want to see what came in that
Treasure Club packet from ESD.?

Clamshells and pearls. I started this with just one row of these buttonhole stitch Clamshells, but decided to add a couple more rows. Glad I did, it works great. These are done in Sassa Lynne, fine pearle cotton in parchment, which I think is on the walk with the other white thread, cause I can find it either........OY!!!!

a closer look.
I will try to be more timely with my posts. I still have a few more things to do with the front of this stocking, then I need to go back to work on a couple of things I put aside for awhile.
Until later, God Bless
