I don't do white! I have a complete aversion to white. You will find white on maybe two of my hearts, but thats it. So, the problem. Maureen wanted the hearts on white. ARRghh. Because I don't do white, I don't have white., and I just couldn't put my heart on white. There is no white in it, it wouldn't go. So, Maureen and I reached a compromise. I could go light.
Now, it did actually end up on white , this awful satinny stuff that frayed like a bi-ach, but I overlayed it with this lovely cream , sheer fabric with the gold metalic leaves on it. It is not a good piccie,I've tried to highlight the background , so the rest looks crappy now. I also put a little stitching in there to make it appear pieced. Just have a wee bit more to do on the block, but I had to finish this. Not having appliqued before, I was avoiding it big time. I used a feather stitch around the heart, which has softed the edges nicely.
Now , checking my stats, I have a reader from Turkey and a reader from Switzerland. Please leave a comment ladies, I would love to 'meet' you.
