its not quite finished yet...as i ran out of thread...and i'm not sure when i can get out to get some more...so i can only show you the back...
when stitching freehand like this, i always start at the back/part least likey to be seen...as i find my stitches are a bit uneven to start with, but sort themselves out once i get going! ;0)
i'm loving having a part of my skirt preserved forever...and plan to make lots of things with the rest of it...
...so why did i cut it up??? actually nobody guessed quite correctly...but Tea bag was closest with her first guess...of a stain...the real truth is...i decided to give the bathroom loo a quick spruce up 5 mins before some guests arrived...and in my hurry i splashed bleach on it...and didn't notice!!!
and the moral of this story is:
********always get someone else to do the dirty jobs!!! ;0) **********
so if Darcy and Tea bag would both be so kind as to leave me their addresses in the comments below or as a PM to agirlcalledbob on UKS...your goodies will swifty wing their way to you!
thanks for playing along...and when its actually finished...i'll share the lampshade in situ, rather than on hubby's head! lol
