Progress from 2006:
Progress 2016 after stripping all the fire damaged bezants and sequins:
New pearls on the upper right, the same pattern was repeated on the upper left and a matching overlapping design added to the lower part.
Yes, it looks very wobbly. This is part of how the fabric was eased over the original support. I’ll be clipping the cotton tulle to let it ease as well.
Stash of pearls used for the update. There are a good number left to be able to use over the seam once assembled.
I am about to add the leaves again, these are different, they are what I used on my Krantz for my laurelling, so these are very apt 🙂
Again the pearls look wibbly, I don’t want to stretch the stitches once I put this back on the support so am having to live with it until then. Once on the support these will have heavier thread passed through to support the curves.
So happy to get this progress. I am doing eat therapy on my hands every couple of hours, 10mins at a time.
