This Months Project: Tissue Covers
Well, the projects request for Pennsic gifts are embroidered covers for the small packs of tissues that people carry in their bag. I had originally though of doing a blackwork pattern in red thread but the linen i have is quite fine and I dont think id be able to finish one before the deadline if I went with the pattern. So...ive chosen a different allover pattern that is counted and take about half the time, but still be just as pretty. The pattern im looking at is a large flower in diamond repeat dated back to 1601, Germany. :) (pictured left)
Ive got the linen stretched onto a mini scroll frame and plan to plug in various movies on this rainy weekend and get truckin on it. :) More photos to come as the progress advances.
