What a busy week it's been. Other than work being relatively busy, I've been a wee bit crippled by sadness and every night has been spent raptly watching the news.
Anyways, work has commenced, especially since during that time, my fabrics came in!
Here is a preview of my sisters robes. The idea is to have black wool exterior, embroidered with gold, with pink silk charmeuse lining. Then trim the whole thing with gold galoons.
Since this is machine embroidered, and each swirl takes approximately 25 minutes, it's been slow going.
Not to mention, I fusiwebed the silk and the wool together after embroidering, then stitched the pink edges closed. Then I HAND BLIND STITCH the entire trim on. (I just can't justify machine sewing on such pretty gold trim!) Anyways... this will take fricking forever. Post again soon when I feel emotionally up for painting up a backpack!
