So I thought I should show you the progress I have made. And there has been some progress!
If you remember, this is what I said I would make.
You can read about it all here, and here, but if you remember, I also said that my version would not look anything like that. Mainly because the pattern called for Broderie Perse applique, and I didn't have anything suitable. [Broderie Perse applique is the term used when you cut an entire design out of one piece of fabric, in this case a spray of flowers, and applique it in its entirety to a background fabric]
I have overcome my anxieties, and have cut the corner pieces. (Thank you to those of you who sent me lovely comments to help me with the Maths for that). I have combined a couple of applique designs to make up my own take, and this is where I am at.
The corner piece on the right is complete, and I have done the first stitches on the one on the left. I do like it!
Here is a close up of the completed corner, complete with a crinkled bit (I could have straightened that before taking the photograph! But I didn't notice that until it was time to write this post, and now its pitch dark).
You can see the other brilliant projects here.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching
