100 details in 200 days - Detail 9 and 9b

There are two details for today. One was shown with a length of fine knitting ribbon threaded through some back stitches. Instead I used a length of joined pearls. The second detail was to couch down a patch of hairy yarn with some fly stitches. Well, that's what I have done, but I don't think much of it. A bit too messy!
Edited 21 June. I took the fluffy stuff out and substituted it for a thick soft yarn. I'm still not keen on this type of detail on my work, others can make it look stunning. Check out our Flickr site.

Hi Diane....You left a comment on my blog asking about the round plastic canvas circle...did I use it for marking on the osterospermum flower on my quilt...the answer is, exactly that!
I like that I can use the plastic canvas to mark different sized circles...it's so convenient.

Have fun with the details! I went through them on the first round and just loved them, and learned so much.
