Stitched papers and little ball fastenings.....these are the final pieces of the swatch collection we have been creating in embroidery class. The papers are overlays, to lay between the delicate surfaces we have created with cloth. Beads and ribbon have been added to those along with a little hand embroidery.
The little ball fastenings can only be described as a labour of love. I don't think I have ever worked with anything as fiddly...ever. Those will be tied to an edge, a final titivation.
I'm hoping to share the finished swatch collection with you at the weekend.
