Seam 4- other stitches are feather stitch and detached twisted chain stitches. Not as impressive as I thought it would be.

Seam6- The lines were crossed and rice stitch worked on them with detached chain and quarter buttonhole wheels. Actually, this seam looked far more interesting without detached chain and buttonhole wheels.

Seam 7- berry stitches and french knots. The berry stitches worked at an angle looks better.

Seam 8- this seam did not turnout the way I wanted at all. Thought this stitch worked like this would look more impressive. Other stitches are- cretan stitch, arrowhead and rope stitch.

Seam 9- a simple seam- with laced running stitch around the coral stitches with pistil stitches.

I need to practice more on building seams, hope the TAST stitches are easy and quick to work with as this stitch.

I am still working on embroidery on this border. I completed the kutch work with anchor cotton skein # 341 and have started the herringbone stitch with silk thread on the four petal flowers in the centre.

I am planning do the hussif in crazy quilting. The pieces are chosen. In this week, I‘ll probably do the board cutting and start with the piecing of the block.
