TAST Week 8: Chain Stitch and Week 9: Couching
The February CQJP block is done. I added more fly stitches to mimic feathers on the blue jay, and along the base of the tree as leaves for some blue French knot flowers.
I used chain stitch to create a vine for the tree trunk, and gave it some red berries.
The March block has an image of flying geese at the center. I couched a wooded bead with Coral Zig Zag stitch right above it.
With some tiny beads, this became a fancy beetle.
I've picked some morning glories and some doves for the patches opposite the beetle. Onward, onward.
