TAST 2007 - crossed buttonhole stitch

Crossed buttonhole stitch in variegated stranded cotton used to couch down wool and knitting ribbon.

The background fabric is scraps of silk and bits of fleece needlepunched onto a piece of black muslin. Then I 'quilted' it with a programmed machine stitch in alternate rows of black cotton and metallic thread, to give it some texture and sparkle. The shiny knitting ribbon is couched down with toning variegated stranded cotton.
