A Seam Treatment for You

Slowly but surely my muse is returning and I am getting some stitching done - baby steps!  I am pleased with how this seam turned out so thought I would share it with you.
I started with a row of cretan stitch in Kreinik gold braid and then added a french knot at the point of each stitch using two strands of red DMC cotton floss.  Above each french knot I added three straight stitches in Kreinik gold braid.  I used Japan gold to weave through, passing it up and down through each set of straight stitches.  Pretty, yes?  It makes a nice wide seam which is what you want sometimes and it had lots of "shiny" to entice my muse out of hiding, lol.  Hope you like it!

OOOOh, this is lovely! Don't be too surprised if you see it popping up by some of us who'd like to borrow it! :-)

Hugs, Cat
