A white wip*
Happy St. Patrick's Day to those who are celebrating and don't imbibe too much in the black stuff!
I've been doing a bit more work on this white piece in between other projects, so it's moved on a bit since you last saw it. I've added a patch of white on white spotty fabric on the top left that's really just there as an excuse for me to decorate a couple of seams!
At the bottom right corner of the central lace piece I've added a little pocket. It's just attached with stab stitches at the moment, but I may add some more embellishment to go with the suffolk puffs and french knots on the top of the pocket.
I've permanently attached the long piece of broderie anglais by stitching on shell knibs and beads, and I'm in the process of using bullion loops to tack down the bottom side of the broderie anglais.
Once the remainder of the bullion loops are done, I'll be adding a few white sequins that I've just ordered especially for this piece (I have loads of different colours of sequins, but no white ones for some reason!). There's still planety to be done in this piece as yet, so it's going to be a while before you see the finished article (probably a pillow, but I'm not entirely sure yet).
I'll be back on Sunday with this week's #our52weekproject installment.
