Busy, busy, busy
Well...this weekend I handed over 7 of the 10 requested Queen's Champion Favors for Aikaterine Fitzwilliam. They are constructed of green velvet base lined with gold linen. The black rose is velvet with glass bead work for the leaf barbing and seed center. The wings and crown are cut from same gold linen as the lining is from. The "AR" as well as the stitch work around all the applique work is split stitch.
3 more to go, mail them off...then its onto the next project on my list!
