I may not physically have much to show for the last couple of days but I have been busy, honest...the piece I wasn't sure about, the white with cutwork and applique has been added to and is now damp stretching waiting to be bound. The silk with blue and white is in the process of being bound...half attached at the moment, tacked on from the back. The binding on this now just needs to be turned over on the front and I can set off on the actual finishing stitches.
My brain has also been ticking...about the shop. I have an idea, a new product but I am pondering on the best way to proceed pattern wise, construction wise etc. My brain really isn't technical at all and things like turn overs and sizes of backs, fronts, sides etc leave me with a headache. It is a constant voice in my head however and surely I must get there soon???
and then there is this...this has been ongoing for a loooooong time. It's kind of a sampler cloth. I practised making buttonholes on it. I practised hooks and eyes and stitching on paper on it. I put a zip in it. I added text to the pocket. I stitched doilies onto it. I pleated silk for the edge of it....well yesterday I tweaked, I titivated and I put it in the shop...better there than gathering dust.
Today I have a mind to ruche more muslin and add it to that particular piece...
