Chris Richards of Ella’s Craft Creations reminds us that the beauty of whitework lies in its texture. She says,
I feel that textural pieces, really catch the eye and obviously which thread you use to accomplish it! In this piece I have used perle threads, simply because they give a wonderfully tactile effect and cast shadows as they are more ‘raised’ than stranded flosses…I’ve used bullion stitch, french knots, needleweaving, buttonhole stitch and spiders web plus many more!!!
And pearls. The perfect touch of sweet pearls. Go to her blog post for more views — images you can click to enlarge.
