One table just isn"t enough sometimes. I was in the process of piecing the Victorian tree-skirt I am doing. I"m thinking this will be a long project as there are 12 wedges for this tree-skirt. I"ll probably be lucky if I do one a month. Sometimes things take me longer than they should as I am easily distracted..then when going through supplies, let"s say I"m looking for a small piece of lace, it seems ALL the lace comes out even after I think I have the right one. I should just pick one and use it but I keep searching in case there"s a better one somewhere..am I the only one that does that??
This is the 1st wedge I have chosen to work on, some of these wedges I pieced on the machine then I wanted to try my hand at hand pieing and I must say I liked the hand-piecing alot..
This is one of the many gorgeous silkies I have chosen to put on wedge #1. The holly leaves on this are a blue-gray so I chose to outline some with Krenik metallic thread and of course holly berries with silk ribbon french knots.
Isn"t she just the cutest little angel you"ve ever seen. I highlighted her wing with Krenik blending filament. This is the first time I really get into doing the hair and I love it. I used reg. DMC threads and boullion stitches. Fun, fun, fun. I"ll post some more pics as I go along and thanks for stopping by..
