|Samples from when I learned silk ribbon embroidery|
Hi to all my cyber friends. I have been busy finishing off some more pages. They are not all of Tast samplers. Over the years from when I was quite a novice embroiderer I made samplers of various stitches resulting in quite a few so I am incorporating some into this book. I have just realised that those examples are almost 20 years old. And yes, again, I am reminded that I definitely do not have a "straight eye" Isn't it funny how the camera shows up what the eye cannot see.
The three outside edges of the pages will be trimmed with pinking shears and after sewing two pages together with the right sides facing and pressing them forming the neat inside edge for the spine side I am going to stitch the pinked edges together. Does that sound like a lot of pollygobble?
I am still trying to decide whether to line the pages to help stiffen them a bit but that is a decision I will make later.
Still have a quite few pages to go so this book looks like being quite thick.....hmm I can see the hand sewing of the pages together at the spine is going to be a monumental task......but will think of that later.
