This morning I whiled away an hour waiting for the sun to come out by reducing my pile of ironing. Very productive I hear you say, well yes, but, when the sun did come out is was an inferior sun and only wanted me to have wishy washy photos. Once again I am apologising for images..
The text panel of white silk was damp stretched overnight. This is the start of my wedding piece for''A''. The second white piece for my throw was also damp stretched overnight so I would say all in all a good days work.
Later today I am going to add these finished pieces to my throw. It is getting exciting now, the end is almost in sight. I think there is another, small piece to make and then we are ready for backing. I don't think I will put rouleau loops on the edge. I am thinking more along the lines of knots and puffs. They are still to be made though so It won't be completely finished for a while yet. As for the Marimekko v gingham debate for the back...I adore Marimekko as you know but part of me wonders would it actually go with this? Is this not a little too ''homespun'' for a designer reverse? Oh dear, decisions, decisions....
I am also working on something that excites me yet scares me...It may not work but if you all cross your fingers (and those of you who can, your toes too) who knows. I can't wait to share but not yet, just incase it all goes horribly wrong!!
