dangles and ruching...

lots of stitching going on here while waiting for a new stove to be installed.

dangles made with scrim to attach to an embroidered piece

bullion stitches, french knots, machine stitched scrim and ruching

Sometimes waiting for an appliance can be a good thing! Lovely work Deanna.

Is scrim like cheesecloth? Your dangles and ruching are both really nice. I think Karen's class would be worth taking from what I have seen you and her other students do. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work.

Deanna, you are definitely a lacemaker. Wow, what you've done with the scrim is wonderful. The hummingbird nest is just vibrating -- thanks for that link, I missed it before. Now you can get back to more dye magic with the new stove! Happy weekend.
