Here I am back after a few days absence. Didn't have much to show or say until now. I have been working erratically on the new blocks. I am trying to restrain myself until we get home where most of my stash and dyes, lace, etc. are. I like to start putting these around before I do too much. I mentioned the beading I was doing on the scalloped fabric. This is what I ended up with. Do you thing it time to stop or any suggestions?
Next I did a silver thread featherstitch following the lines but it did not show up so I went over it with some knitting ribbon I had in a silver color . then it looked better and I added a little zigzag bead trail between and that picked up the bit of color in the silver ribbon. I was hoping this picture would go in front of this paragraph. Obviously I am not doing something right. They keep going up top. Help someone. Tell me how to get the picture below or above the paragraph. I have more to add so I guess they will be the same until I figure this out. Also why is there always 2-3 inches between paragraphs that I have to go back and move up? Anyone know?
Next pic was a bead trail I did down the silver and grey stripes. Hard to know what to do with stripes. This in't the greatest but can always be pulled out later if I decide I can't live with it.
Next I added a piece of tatting to the little black piece with the green motif that was embroidered on the fabric. It had very faint black spokes radiating out from the middle so I used greenish beads to match the clor and just did spokes to fill in. Also on this piece is the little piece of ribbon I found that I had done awhile ago. I also added a pic of this whole block.
Just to let you know I am almost finished with the pink quilt. I have added a piece of an old flannelette sheet that I tear up and use for dusters. It was the perfect size and I did as Allie suggested. I invisibly hand stitched a lot of the quilt parts to the flannel to give it more body for hanging. Next is adding the pink backing. I will be very glad to see the finish of this considering I spent 2 years on it and have no idea where it is going to hang,
Probably under the bed in a box where my kimona is now residing.
