Weekend guest Written by briary Last weekend we had a guest! This is my sisters dog Brody, he was great company to have around the house for the weekend. I managed to catch up on doing block 3 from Jacquelynne Steves blog. experiment with cold tea dye These doilies were very grey and needed attention before I could use them. I like the colour now and it was very easy to do just let them soak in cold tea for about 20 mins then rinse off well. I like to stretch these pieces as ironing tends to flatten them. I have used a cork bath mat which has been attached to a large old picture frame to give support and then just pin your pieces on whilst damp. A little bird These silk threads I purchased on e-Bay for a couple of pounds. My first time using silk thread.I am pleased with the way this little bird turned out. Used a simple back-stitch and some French knots. Advertisements Share this:TwitterFacebookGoogleLike this:Like Loading... One thought on “Weekend guest” Your embroidery is beautiful and I like the colors you chose for the quilt block, especially the pink and creamy yellow side-by-side. I had not heard of cold tea dying. I might have to give it a try. Your doilies are exquisite! LikeLiked by 1 person Comments are closed.
