I decided to apply the tape with running stitch. I always try to stay true to my motivation where I can and I think running stitch is one of our most basic utility stitches, it's also a favourite one of mine to do, really relaxing and not at all challenging.
There will be five strips of this in all to apply to the silk and again I am using the colours which match the vintage cloth I have appliqued. Just to get a sense of how it will look when it's finished I have placed both unfinished sections together. I think they will compliment each other really well, with the all over floral design of the first panel next to the more regimented linear pattern of the second.
On another subject....It was my birthday yesterday!! Happy birthday to me!! and I wanted to share some of the lovely presents I got, look, aren't they gorgeous!
