The morning was time enough to take care of the ‘must-do’ tasks which left the afternoon fa-reee!!!!!! Ms Texas Juki and I and a lovely little vintage linen piece. Let the micro-stippling and feathers(!!!!) begin…………….. I’m not exactly sure how this piece would have been used (a vanity?? small side table?? buffet/hutch??) but it’s in perfect condition so it’s time to transform it. The dimensions are 10”x 17” with one narrow edge having this sweet detail… I placed it directly on the batting and will bind it (very narrow!) with a pale color which will, also, be slipped behind that small lace piece. Once again I must say—-I’m blown away by the “life” that appears with this stitching technique (note the first photo….left vs right side of the embroidery).
Thread: (top and bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly-70wt. Batting: Hobbs Heirloom cotton/poly-80/20 (single layer).
Now…..back to the fun. What’s up in your world this afternoon???? Warm Texas hugs comin’ at y’all…………..
I totally agree that you get better control of stitches on a domestic vs that with a long arm. Beautiful stitching…its awesome.
Off to Mercedes to do a little presentation and demo…….spreading the vintage fmq love!!!!! hehehe……….
Safe travels … you’ll be a big inspiration and help to many.
It was loads of fun!!!!!!
very pretty work!
Thank you, Karen. “Marvelous Monday” to you (did you get any snow out of the pesky systems that are going through??)!!
Well put!! I find it totally so!!!!! LOL!!!!
Your stitches are so even and beautiful, I can barely find where you doubled back on the feathers….in awe!
There’s so much better ‘control’ when stitching on a domestic, rather than a long-arm/sit-down LA (I think). I know you could achieve the same IF time wasn’t such a crunch issue. Someday………………..hugs………..
Thanks, Suzy!!!!! Happy Monday!!!!
WOW!!!! It looks awesome!!
Why, thanks so much!!!!!! Hugs…..
What a beautiful piece you are working on. I really like it.
It’s really a simple little piece. I’m not sure of its final direction, though. Maybe even left half-done as a “demo” piece. Thanks for popping by!!!!!!
