Debra: TAST- Oyster Stitch

I got a lot of practice in with the Oyster stitch this week. Here's my sewing journal page and here's the link to my blog where I am working on a new piece called Mother and Child.


 

Lots of stitching left to do to get this block finished for July!

Looking good! Nice buttons too.

I rediscovered those buttons while looking for other embellishments. The dress button is perfect for the journal theme.

Another innovative way of attaching ric-rac. Looks a very expensive seam treatment with all those oysters! Black and white ribbons marries in so well with the green and pink and those buttons are spot on.

When I was done it reminded me of the trim down the front of my elementary school dresses.

The checked ruffle is really (un)wired floral trim I gathered through the middle; courtesy of the $1 bins at Michaels.

Your oysters sure look lots better than mine! Love the way you used them on the tips of the rick rack, including the nifty way you attached it to the ribbon. Cute buttons, too. Nice job, Debra!

It's taken me about 6 months to get warmed up for this CQ work!

Oh, those buttons! So cute. I love the black and white check playing off the black and white plaid, and the black and white gathered ribbon. Your oyster stitch looks good.

I never would have thought of using this stitch in this fashion. It looks great. Great button!

Thanks, Ladies!

Great oyster stitching there on the ric-rac. It's a stitch that can have so many different looks. Love those buttons (nice to re-find forgotten ephemera).
