Making a Start

I have started to embellish my crazy patchwork quilt, it's quite time consuming but I love the results. I am really quite proud of the butterfly which I embroidered, I got the tip from Shawkl blog, you have to trace the butterfly or whatever onto greaseproof paper and then cut out leaving enough paper so that you can baste it to your work and then embroider through the paper when you have finished the paper tears off quite easily, such a good idea, the lovely piece of lace was also from shawkl blog it is hand dyed, I have lots of beads and it's great fun sorting through them deciding which one's to use but I usually end up with quite a few down between the settee cushions.
