April Seams only

This month has been rather busy and I haven’t blogged for ages.

Here is the Southern Cross Seams Only block I added stitches to for April.     I am not happy  with the method of uploading pics.  I get a camera in a frame but don’t know how to see the photos so I can add text to each one.  grrrr.

If anyone can tell me how to work this new method I would be grateful.

Alison's block

I’ll just have to hope this works.  There is a picture of Oyster stitch in orange chenille and Sassa Lynne fly stitches. Above this I added the metallic Cretan stitch, detached cast-ons and French knots.

I added double cross-stitch in purple thread to Joy’s work and below, the heavier green silk thread stem stitch to Patti’s delicate branches. I whipped my stems in gold but that is not visible.

I did the green crossed Cretan stitches, the chiffon Japanese stitch flowers and metallic FKs.  also the silk leaves on Joy’s seam. Lastly I did a row of Fargo roses in the hand-dyed lace.  The block is made of gloriously rich colours and the girl’s stitching is just great.

  1. Maureen, do you know about Windows Live Writer? You may be able to do what you want with pictures and text there, then publish it to your site.

    I love the colors in this lasted block.
