This 'doodle' however has a future...I have plans for this piece which I will keep you updated on I promise.
Now back to my latest cloth, you can see the blue tailors chalk line here that marks out the hexagon shapes for patchwork. This trailing floral embroidery will be combined with text hexagons and joined to the already completed section, (the piece with the embroidered cotton tape)
If you look closely at these two images you can see that the fabric is slightly ruched, hence the need to damp stretch. Trust me, it's not purely an obsession, sometimes it's a necessity!
