It sure gets in the way of my sewing, Lol.
My LE Border has progressed as I have spent every spare minute working on it.
Putting the other side in place was easy and my new fabric worked well for the vase.
But will my choice of fabric for the daisies work, they are very soft colors, but it is silk marriage kimono fabric and I WANT to use it in LE!!!
This photo shows how beautiful this fabric is, but colors are not true, it is much softer.
I hated to cut into it, but
I couldn't bring myself to cut only the flowers so incorporated some of the gold leaves and tried to keep the purity of the design. This is very close to the true color.
Once this was stitched there was no going back as I would never try to unpick that stitching, the rest of my flowers just have to suit.
I think this works.
Have spent all morning fussy cutting and trying different option's.
Added lilac's and blue's, took out both.
Still have to add the dark dots on the right, but it will only be five.
In this photo you can see why.
Staying with the smaller medallion at the ends has created more space.
I should have moved them in a little, but I didn't!!!
Five dots only give me more space towards the center, add four more and the balance will be way out
Now thinking about Esther's flowers next to the vase.
Do I need them or not?.
At least I have got myself to the stage that I can stitch for the next few days whenever I get the opportunity.
Cheer's everyone, Jenny
