Thinking Christmas in May???
Anyway I am a bugger for not planning. I cut all this piece free-hand, by eye, winging it in velvet and silks. Adding some little precious transfoils gleaned from somewhere and stashed. Covered in organza. Stitched heavily in between seeing patients today and making the house unusually presentable. It looks great in it's heavily stitched form...and then tomorrow I am to zap the organza with a heat gun to melt selected parts back. Am I set for a fall after a highly productive day?
Will the thread melt, will the foil take it????? Hah I have no idea. As I said, I am the world's worst planner and can't seem to muster energy for samples. City and Guilds qualifications would be the death of me. Samples? My goodness I rarely can do them. No I have to launch headlong into the real thing otherwise I am bored!
Anyway I have loved this dense thread sketching process. Check back here to see if it all goes up in flames with the heat tool!!
