The jacket had been beautifully pieced but some of the sheer scarf pieces were starting to fray and would unravel the equiste embroidery and because some where on pockets and sleeves could not be put under the machine so we set to with a chain stitch with a similar thread. Perfect.
I did manage to do a little machining and worked on an ATC in black, white and ........... will post the finished one tomorrow!!!!
I would like to send my best wishes and thoughts to Judy, Haydn and family at this time.
One of the ladies who had tried the embellishing the week before had brought her finished card with it into show us. it was beautiful but like a true artist she thought it needed something else and wan't quite right but would work on it. It was beautiful! she had embroidered Dorset buttons and included gold work on it too!
Another visitor brought in this jacket, it was a thrift shop find and had originally been made in India. Amazing embroidered sections all crazywork pieced together. Beautiful. The lady had brought it in to see if she could embellish the frayed ends in or what stitch to use.
