Finished the designing and transfering of the pattern for the engagement card last night, (used the glass in the front door as a light box as there's a light just outside!!! Much cheaper and easier to store than a real light box!!), and here it is thus far complete with threads and the card blank I'll be using. With the enormous colletion of threads I own, it takes almost as long to select the type of colour of threads to use as it does to design etc!! I suppose it's actually part of the design process. The heart itself will be done in this lovely pale gold colour, with bullion knot and rosette stitch flowers and fly stitched leaves. It's great to be able to use some of these lucious threads as many of the things I make need to be washable, (cushions and other practical things), and these over-dyed threads are not colourfast.
