It's a real hive of activity here....paperwork two in progress here. This one is finished completely now and looks very different laying near me on the table as does number one which is next to it. Number three is almost there too. Things have been tested and tried and some disregarded. I want you to wipe zip fasteners from your minds and also machine embroidered paper...neither added anything to these pieces so have fallen into the pit of tried and struck from the consciousness.
I am enjoying working this way so much. I have a hankering to make a massive one of these for myself, to hang above my bed perhaps. It is going on the wish list but as this work takes longer than my 'conventional' embroidery I am not going to hold my breath. If you like fiddly then this way of working will be right up your street. There is also the added factor that obviously this cannot be damp stretched so it requires constant vigilance, trying not to create even the slightest crease in the paper as it's being stitched...go on try it...see what I mean.
I really hope you are not getting bored with this because it will be at the forefront of posting for another week at least. I am going away next week, off to London for daughter time and will keep working with these until I go. Can't say what will happen when I get back, there will definitely be more attention given to my embroidery but who knows, these may still be around.
