Seed Stitch

This morning I went into my sewing room and noticed these seed pods had been placed on a cloth by my cleaning lady – now I know, I think, why seed stitch is named so!

A week ago these were green and closed – from a nearby liquid amber tree, courtesy Mike.

It’s a lovely filler, and the finer the thread the lovelier, so not one I use much! But of course, everything is relative, so in, say, the heavy neon thread of which I still have about 5750m, on a largish piece it could be very dramatic – and I’m thinking about that. I last used it in this sample piece from Richard McVetis’ workshop last year:
