shabby chic

I gave myself a telling off today for not blogging enough. Too much ‘I bought this’ blah blah. It isn’t that I am not doing stuff, but I am not finishing things!! So I decided to post a work in progress

shabby scarf close up

The white fabric is solusheet dissolvable fabric, the grey is a silk sari ribbon hank. The plan is to free motion stitch with metallic thread to hold the strips together.

I have had some problems with my thumb joint and had a steroid injection a few weeks ago. Huge smile as it worked and I could move my thumb without wincing. However when I was free motion stitching on the scarf the pain came back. I was not happy. I have rested my hand for a few days and happily all is well again, but it is clear that I won’t be able to free motion embroider again without using a hoop. Lesson learned. It will take longer to hoop, stitch, re-hoop etc, but I will get the job done.
