we couldn’t stand the suspense another minute and decided to show some of the Queen Bee’s stitcheries afterall … the fun of sharing took us over
… here is a “real” look at what I added to Margaret’s stitchery… more than the tease of my previous blog post
… I added a TAP transfer using a free Paper Whimsy image (sign up for Gale’s newsletters and you too can receive her generous gift of free images) … I framed the lovely lady with a piece of vintage fabric from an old embroidered dresser scarf … pulling the fabric around from the back … stitching around willy nilly with a few french knots to top it off … this was stitched above the lace and crocheted bits Margaret had added to the bottom of her stitchery… next I added the vintage lace and button to the top … those are some of the threads I used off to the side …
it will be fun to see the stitcheries in stages as they make each stop along their way home
