    Depends if you enjoy doing it for yourself, a bit like a meditation thing. Doesn’t matter how long it takes…. I advocate slow sewing (=stronger garments you can pass on to your daughter) and am slower than the norm… There are so many projects I completed lately, I am not even bothered to photograph them honestly…XX

      You’ve got a point there.
      Oh, and I would love to see your new projects! Hope you take pictures soon!

    That’s really great! It would work equaly well as an appliqué sewn directly onto any garment! Black background is perfect! Love your innovation and creative approach: whichever direction your imagination takes you: you follow it ‘full on’. Intuitive would be the perfect adjective. Curiosity, invention and a dash of baroque!

      You read me as an open book H.!
      Everything you said is true to the core of it!
      And yes, to appliqué something like this onto any garment would add a special feeling to it! I imagine a dress in cutwork… oh… the possibilities.
      (I once had a blouse in cutwork – made all the women stare at it like enchanted!)

      Ahhh! if only men be enchanted by cutwork the same way as the women were by your top i’d chisell my way into appliqué variations… just joking :0)
      Want to see a re-edition of that very blouse!

      Oh, men are generally unaware of such things (exceptions excluded) don’t blame them they are really from Mars :) However I would like to see it myself only it would take so much precious time and I don’t know if it is worth doing.
