1ST FABRIC FINISHED
Here are soe pics of the first fabric I finished in Karen Ruane's class. All I have left to do on this one is to sew on the two buttons on the bottom right side once the fabric is backed. I am leaving them off to make the sewing easier. Right now they are just sitting there.
I am working on #2 and #3 simultaneously. I go back and forth. I also showed above a small sample cloth I tried out a few things before doing them on my cloth. I have more cutwork and applique to try plus chinese buttons still to do.
After starting on 2 and 3 I found that I had cut #1 cloth about 1" shorter in width and had already embroidered on the other two so could not cut them down easily. I added extra fabric on the bottom and added the lace trim plus french knots, etc.
I hope it doesn't look too much like an add on.
