blue is the color lately...

The scrim smocking piece is finished. Did a bit of free motion stitching on the scrim to give a lace like frame and backed it with some blue hand dyed cotton.

sorry, a bit late on commenting...must have posted after i turned off the computer. the smocking has really been transformed by the blue backing. it looks so different from the first photo...i can see a lot of possibilities for its use. lovely. the crocheting reminds me of my mom. before her illness and arthritis she use to make such beautiful crocheted items. thanks for sharing

Hi, Deanna. Your scrim piece is so elegant and I love the crocheted necklace. Your dyeing experiments a few posts back are interesting as always and the cameo stitched onto fabric is a brilliant idea. Looks so neat!
best, nadia

Beautiful. That necklace is really nice. Would fit as a nice fringe in a cloth too.

The blue behind the smocking looks great and such beautiful crocheting. Your curiosity and skill are a lovely combination :)

Your scrim smocking looks delicate and the blue really shows it off - nice work! And I like your crochet necklace too - I recently bought a knit necklace - it's very loosely knit and is a double loop over my head. I like the idea of a soft necklace.
