Since last sunday I have made four pieces to add to my throw...the piece I showed you yesterday and the one from the day before, both white. There were thirty ginham hexagons too, remember them? Then there was the piece I made with the applique cotton lawn...phew...sounds like a marathon but hasn't actually felt like one at all. Last night I joined all four to the main piece and oh how different they look...one section gained a broderie anglaise trim for a seam. That created a kind of petticoat effect which is so very pretty.
Yesterdays white piece was placed, together with the gingham hexagons at another edge, near to a row of tiny white buttons that I think may have been one of the very first pieces I made.
One of the pieces created with the fine cotton lawn has been attached to the cross stitch alphabet, I think it looks really good here, almost as if it was made with that in mind. I can assure you it wasn't, I wish I was that well organised!! Now I think I have only another two sections to make and then the backing can go on. Re the Marimekko debate...yesterday I wan't saying that my throw wasn't worthy of Marimekko, only that I wondered if it would ''match'', such a prominent and quite contemporary print on the reverse of something so homely...answers please...
I am making notes for my FAQ page....If you have any questions you think I should answer on there then please help me out. As for my ''secret'' project.....I am going to be working on that as soon as I have pressed the publish button for this post...wish me luck!
