In Which Our Heroine Is Up 'Til 3am
An 11' flattened tube of black linen, 3" wide, all machine-"embroidered" (it's just fancy stitches my machine does). I'd started with the white and yellow, thinking "silver and gold on black", but then somehow it became a "garden" of green "turf", red "flowers", and blue edging for water around the outside of the white "fence."
Yeah, I have no idea. It was 3am. I went through FOUR SPOOLS OF THREAD. All stuff I had laying around not being used, so, no big. It also took me just over four hours. But now I have a pretty, and looooong, cloth belt to wrap and use with my bliauts and things like that.
Tiny picture is tiny. This is just a plastic "pearl" button. I painted the "pearl" with red nail polish, LOL, and will be sewing it to the front V of my new purple dress. As a centerpiece, yes; but also to cover up a place where the decorative stitching is a bit f'd up. I promise the red doesn't look this plastic and pinky in real life. You'll see. :)
Three days and counting!
