We'll talk about embroidery in a minute but first I want to say that I am truly overwhelmed. I cannot believe how many of you want a piece of my tat. Fact is I have received more comments then I ever imagined so must apologise and simply say that I really don't think I will be able to respond to them all. It doesn't really sit well with me though, good manners and all that but I would like to ask those of you who commented for the first time please do so again at some point, when it's a bit quieter because I really would like to see all your blogs without the pressure of having around 100 to get through. The give aways will remain open until saturday and then EVERYONE will be in the hat.
Just a word too on keeping stuff in drawers. It is a very nice drawer, a special drawer. There are all kinds of precious things in there. It's not the cutlery drawer or the carrier bag drawer, it's my dresser drawer, in my boudoir. The best place for anything around here, trust me, it's safer!!
Now back to embroidery. I have added to the section of toe wrap two that has the lace on the cotton lawn, remember? There is pleated fabric behind cutwork circles and a border of cross stitch hearts. This afternoon I am hoping to make some prairie points with white broderie anglaise as an edge that will join another two sections. I also hope to get the backs cut out for my hook and eye pieces and make a start on adding the fastenings. There is a little reluctance to show you the hook and eye piece again, how many times can you look at metal fastenings without yawning?? So I am aiming to keep toe wrap two ticking over at the same time. We shall see how that goes. I promise I will show you the hook and eye pieces when they are finished though.
