As for the white on white piece, well first of all I have to thank Jude and Deanna for making this happen. Despite appearances I have very little lace and vintage white cloth and some of what I have used in here has been gifted to me by them. I spent what seems like hours trawling the internet on friday looking for lace but sadly was unsuccessful. Any links anyone?? This piece was crying out for extras too so three tiny rouleau loops were made for one seam and one edge is fringed.
I have listed both these pieces this morning so they are now in the shop. I really want someone to ask me to make a big one, a very big one. I don't feel as if I can just make one for myself, why is that? Maybe I can, I should just go for it. There are more purse frames on their way so I have started work on some embroidery for those. I haven't really done anything book wise, thought about it a little bit but haven't come to any firm plan yet. In the meantime I am being wined and dined this evening! No cooking, excellent!
