It's good to have a break from the intense stitching for my 'timepieces.' I've made a cupcake for the next Guild meeting and had a day with my two fellow members of Trident. Today we went all retro and had an experimental foray into sheer organza and the soldering iron (a la Margaret Beal style).
It was fun but frustrating that nothing worked the way I wanted it to - until a half an hour before finishing time when I started to pick up all the discarded pieces and took out a needle and thread and made this raggy flower. By no means a masterpiece but it saved the day for me.
