This is the final picture ... I laid out all the red and Black scraps on a piece of curtain interlining and pinned into place I then appliqued the edges which were overlapped slightly the finished piece measures 12.5" x 21"and I shall cover a sketchbook with it probably

Really love this pattern. The khaki one is long sleeved and I may still yet put some lace along the bottom of it and the second one is short sleeved with black lace over the back of it. I plan to make a lace flower on a brooch pin for the front.

I am making a skirt in black denim and plan to embroider some detail on the bottom front of the skirt. Which would you pick and do you think it looks ok in the variegated thread or would it be better in a solid colour (or stitched out in a colour pattern?)
Then I had a go at FMQ for the first time I drew a pattern using a roll of parcel tape to get the circles and worked more triangles around Imi's scraps of oakshott fabrics which I appliqued for the leaves (which measure 2"across the base and are 1" tall.). the background  fabric is shot silk dupion
Ok... Got time to catch up with this.. this is the latest bear from scraps  .. all Imi's except a little bit of green .. there wasn't enough green to go round his tummy

I feel like the original version would work if it had a series of stays or even tacks keeping things in place behind the scenes. I can't offer anything more specific, unfortunately. I'd have to make one and see if I could come up with something and I absolutely promised myself I'd sew up the dozen projects I have cut out already before starting anything.

As for the top stitched version, what if you start the top stitching at the apex and go the other way? That way you won't have a bubble. You might have a different problem, though.

Sending lots of hugs, Jessie. It should be cooler this week which should help.

Oh booooooo!

I have been shopping, and have been noticing all the clothes with embroidery on them - and how much better it could be...
