Seam embellishment of the week

Now the stitches used are the chain stitch (or lazy daisy?) and the stem stitch. When embroidering my spring block I made a seam very similar to Lesa's - as if I had anticipated LOL. The stitches are not quite even because I measured by eye only. As to stem stitch, I love it! It is so useful in making waves and curves. On my spring block the tiny flower basket is sewn with stem stitch.

I have to stop embroidering my spring block, even if I don't want to! I have to leave some seams unbellished for my exchange partner as well.

Hi Malla!

Your spring block is very pretty. I like the way you did Lesa's lazy daisy stitch before even seeing it!
Nice color choice! And the fan is very cute, too.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I added a link for the bunny pattern in case you're interested. :>)

This is looking great! When I did the seam embellsihment on that block that Lesa has on her site, I used variations of that stitch. If they are joined it is called a "Chain Stitch", if they are just used in a single stitch it is called "Lazy Daisy". Hope that helps.
