BoInk week 5 – I did more of the black knotwork at the bottom, just to be sure I was all-good. Then I went back to the top of this motif to start filling in. Very much enjoying this project, I wish I could do more than one day a week on it!
And Lizzie*Kate! Gift #1 is stitched and finished! This is an L*K snippet, “Ask Me About My Grandkids”, Silkweaver Solo 28ct Cashel Linen, DMC flosses. Finished as a photo frame, using satin stitches to reinforce the cutout. The fabric is glued, but the picture can be changed. Yay, me! It even has a ribbon hanger (it’s hanging on a coat hook in the pic), and handmade cording to cover the seams. Backing fabric nearly matches the linen. I’m not sure why it’s so weird looking in the pic – it’s kind of a cloudy-aqua, and I had some quilting fabric on hand that matched. Thank you to Vonna (The Twisted Stitcher) for her flat-fold instructions – I’m adapting them to other finishing techniques, as you can see.
