I'm petaling...

Nothing sexy today.


Just the tedious task of overcasting 15 flower petals for placement onto my Breakfast at Tiffany's crazy quilt block. I hope to get the 10 petals stitched over a sandwich of silk organza and two layers of silk tulle...finished today? Eyes willing....

Then I could do the five bobbinet petals tomorrow?

Keep petaling....keep petaling...

And isn't it funny? I'm going on my first bike ride today in over 8 months so I'll be pedaling in more ways than one...

How Funny
Before I ever saw your last line, I was thinking of peddling and looked back to see you had typed petaling.

I'm on your wavelength yet again.

I am *most* interested in how you go using the organza and tulle.

Organza recently defeated me just in surface embroidery. Kept getting little 'needle runs' where I stitched - and I was only using a No. 10 Sharp and a single strand of DMC!

Fray Stop may become a good friend here....

Dear Susan,
Hope your eyes are holding out. I was at the Jean Paul Gaultier press preview on Tuesday and once again you were on my mind as I toured the galleries. I took lots of photos of the embroidery and beading and will be writing a post for you. This exhibition will travel to the USA - Dallas and San Francisco so maybe you will get to see it in person perhaps.
