Stocking Detail 19

This is the area near the toe. The toe itself is still empty. The lace is 1 1/2 inches wide and already had the gold braid as part of it. I added gold seed beads and green bugle beads in little V shapes to accentuate the zigzag and spice it up a bit.
The seam across the top is palestrina stitch sewn with rayon floss in two colors of green and a gold rayon thread. Hanging down from that are vines done in tiny feather stitches, randomly spaced and sewn with a single strand of rayon floss. Each tip has a gold seed bead.

I just found your blog on Sharon B's list of TIF challengers. I love your stockings - so much work in each one! Beautiful stitching.

I love the tiny feather stitches... they look so good hanging from that seam.
