It all started with a sample of floral lace I had been given.
I had no use for it as it was so I cut out the flowers and laid them out on some blue fabric and then started stitching around them.
Nothing complex, mostly french knots in perle cotton in a myriad of colours.
I added some silk ribbon fargo roses and used up some scrappy pieces of silk ribbon by tacking along one edge and then pulling the tacking until the ribbon ruched into a little flower.
I add some bridal lace in the top left hand corner as an extra but it could easily be removed if I did not want it there anymore.
The background fabric is light blue quilting cotton and the piece is backed with lightweight wadding and quilters muslin. It measures approximately 23 x 29 cm (9.5 x 11.5 inches).
Now that I am about done, I am not sure what to do with it. It was just something I had in my work basket to work at in the evenings when I did not have anything else around and fancied doing a bit of stitching.
I did think it could be used for the front of a handbag or framed and put on the wall, or I could put it on my Trade Me auctions and try and sell it.
As a follower, what do you think I should do with it?
