Introduced in yesterday’s post. As I was doing some bead work, all I could think of was the (very) old winter song from 1951, and sung by Rosemaryy Clooney, “Suzy Snowflake”. Check out these 2 links….one, more Currier & Ives/Rosemaryy Clooney and the other, a video of the genre that is definitely ‘50s TV!!!!!!! I know I’m definitely ‘dating’ myself with that 2nd one!!!! Anyhow, the beading is completed……….. This activity is just the detail work I love! I used a few more pearls/sequins left from my bridal gown sewing days. There is a bit of space surrounding this piece and, of course, 1 or 2 ideas are floating in my head! BUT, first, Ms Juki is showing her age/usage! As I was stitching around the perimeter of the piece to better anchor/stabilize it prior to the handwork, the fmq foot went from this…. to this…… Kinda just fell apart at the “ankle”! Well, a call made to a Raichert’s tech resulted in my ordering the new side-opening fmq foot made for the Juki TL series, which is a good thing so I don’t have to do a modification like I did on the above pictured foot!
For further details, regarding thread or batting, etc, used, see yesterday’s post here. Now….on to some planning and fmq (I hope!)…………….
