WAHOOOOOOOO...........the seam treatments are all done on the Cream & White Christmas stocking. I only started it back in August 07. Of course there have been alot of things to disrupt my work on it, but alas it is ready to stitch up. Here you will find details I posted back then, just to get you reacquainted with the stocking, you will find other stockings as well.
Now to some of the finial details. For the treatments below we have cross stitch design done in K.N.K. silk #78 with arrow stitch to decorate the sides, beautiful golden seed beads finish it off.
Next to that I used Sassa Lynne thread in Linen to make up little bow ties, they are pulled together with the same K.N.K silk threads. The rick rack above is held down with rayon thread in gold.
These are the last two seam treatments (though I have others to show you once I can get good pictures) that finish off the stocking.
First is a combination of things, done in Sassa Lynne, Linen, using Carole Samples templates to get the spacing right. The shells are chain stitched with spokes coming out of each chain and a flau pearl at the center, topped off with flowers whose stems are stem stitched, straight stitch leaves and triple french knot flower heads.
Lastly are golden rayon french knots to enhance the pretty lace.
More details to come along with the finished stocking.......
