This week's stitch at Sharonb's blog http://www.pintangle.com/ is the Cup Stitch.
It's easy to work and could add lots of texture to a piece. It's quite small, so it would take quite a few but the threads could be varied for a sumptious area.
I finally finished up a crazy quilt piece that has been around for a long time. The stitching is done on the machine using those decorative stitches we never know what to do with. The closure is dicroic glass button that I found at a gift shop that was going out of business. I love a bargain which it was but would prefer that the businesses would survive.
