you may remember that several months ago i broke out this top, even though technically it wasn’t finished.
well, several months, a weekend spent visiting friends with kids, and two viewings of “wreck-it ralph” (in one saturday! 4-year-olds…what are you gonna do?) later, i’m much closer to getting it to its final state.
i filled in the “bloomers” stencil using a very wide satin stitch, so that the glitter paint shows through in the right light. i also decided to “string applique” a rose from my rose motif stencil over the leaves for a real three-dimensional texture.
all that remains is to tack the string applique in place, maybe using beads? or is that too much?
much to do this weekend, friends. i have a dress to finish and a vegetable garden to get in the ground. plus, my fruit trees arrived this week! exciting things are happening.
have a great weekend!
