Stitch 30: Long Tail Chain, plain beaded and whipped

Stitch 30: Long Tail Chain, plain beaded and whipped

This is not a good photo. When I finish this one, I'll give it a good damp stretch and take some decent photos. I do have some tension problems, both with and without a hoop, so I suppose there will still be some puckering.

Nonetheless, I enjoyed doing this section. I forgot to do any whipped ones, though.

The first row of sample stitches are made of the wool-free lace yarn and a crochet thread I don't know the size of because it has no lable, but it's close to perle 8, and it, too is variegated. The next three rows are the HHLizbeth size 20 crochet thread. Every time I see it I think of a high school sex ed class drawing of sperm.

I don't know bead sizes. I think the first two beaded flowers would be seed beads.  The first is stitched with HHLizbeth size 20 crochet thread. The second is more of the crochet thread in the top row (a different section, so a different color).  The third flower has beads a bit larger and the thread is a soft knitting yarn I got at GoodWill, so no labels.

The random purple and yellow stitxhes are perle 8, as are the little flowers in the lower left corner.

 I also don't know anything about the ribbon in the flower in the lower right corner.  It's nice and cooperative for embroidery. The green is ruched. The pink is large lazy daisy stitches and the pistils and stamen are long chain and pistil stitch, in perle 8.

I see a world where all people accept each other as friends and neighbors, and celebrate each person's uniqueness as a vital part of everyone's life, like threads in a tapestry. -F. Shafer Junaid
