Big sigh.......glorious white silk, love it, love it, love it. Can't get enough of it, want more of it, want to touch it, want to hold it all day. O.K. you get my drift now. My white on white silk panel with hexagons is finished, complete, ready, backed with silk and edged with a little strip of hexagons along one edge, buttonhole stitch along the other three.
I have worked so hard on this one. Not in a bad way, I loved every minute and adored every stitch and don't get me wrong I have loved all the others too, especially the ones with vintage pieces in them as I feel I share that work with those who created the old cloth, the aged cloth. They have a connection to those pieces too. With this one I feel that special connection which comes from creating each and every section from the very beginning. Taking a piece of plain white silk and embellishing with embroidery, cutwork, text, before cutting and joining and arranging whilst arriving at the finished article. Nothing more to say really, the only thing left to do is touch and drool!
In other news, wait for it, I've been out today! I kid you not, I went to the supermarket and it made me realise why I would rather not go out!! You part with an awful lot of money, meet ignorant road users, get trampled, bumped and ignored. I am off to the shed, there's a much better ambience in there, see you soon.
