Edges, the edges of embroidered fabric swatches. Earlier in the week I was speaking about more folded hankie edges. They will still happen at some stage but for now I have resisted. For now we have folded cloth on one edge and beads and buttonhole stitch on another. On this one I have gone the extra mile, beading the seam edge on the reverse of the hem, the tiny gold beads. I don't know why I haven't thought of that before, after all the way I intend to mount these pieces means the reverse will be visible.
Embellished reverses may well become the new normal here. Just imagine how much potential for extra embroidery that creates. What's not to love?
