Judy~Couching on SBS
At first, I was a little befuddled as to how to use couching on my March block. (Didn't even really know how to practice because I'd done couching before...) What to do with plain ol' DMC embroidery thread? Then I decided to use a full strand of floss and couch it over the lines of her butterfly net. The thread wasn't overly cooperative, but it looks OK. I had fun with her hat though: used broad chain on the ribbon and was surprised that it kind of resembles the buttonhole stitch on the hat. After I got tired of that, I switched to chain stitch at the top. Do you think the brim needs something more? Wonder what stitch is coming next?
