This is my alternating up and down buttonhole stitch, the beaded version. I used Kreinik Very Fine Braid and crystal beads. I think it works well on this seam. I am linking with Sharon B at http://pintangle.com/ I try to not post too many personal details on my blog but I feel I should explain my week long absence from posting. My Mom passed on last week. I am grateful my sister was able to be here so we could share some laughter and tears together.
