You wouldn't think this would work but it does. Silk Dupion and silver purl mixed with vintage cloth and aged hankies, a little new pattern thrown in, a few spots and a Liberty print....this is a proper pick and mix. It's not finished. I still need to come up with something striking for the lower edge . The left hand side however will be simple, running stitch most likely. (as I was typing that I was thinking bullion loops, being distracted by the possibilities of those) I'm ignoring myself....running stitch it is.
The past couple of weeks have been very weird here. Lots happening, good things mostly, remarkable recoveries from major surgery (not me) , (wish I could high five you all) lots of disruption, distraction, requirements to leave the house regularly, (as you know I don't like to leave the house). We survived and tomorrow is the start of a calmer phase hopefully. Tomorrow should be the start of me keeping up with e mails, answering comments, creating huge amounts of loveliness. Thanks for hanging in with me.....I will see you tomorrow at the start of a bright, new, perfect rest of year.
