...then, somewhere between that point
and the finished product something happened.
The embroidery got OUT OF CONTROL!
It was supposed to be simple outlines and some beads;
somehow it turned into full fledged crewel work and lots of beads.
This is definitely one project that took on a life of its own.
Vision. Discipline. Restraint...Out the window.
The heavy needlework on this side made the whole thing feel off kilter.
What to do? What to do?
I found the solution at the flea market last Sunday.
A pretty silver butterfly.
I think it was originally a broach, but the pin back broke off.
A bar with a tiny hole in it made it easy to sew on.
So here is my heart, albeit slightly misshapen.
Who knew that a heart loaded with beads would be hard to sew?
Not me...but I do now!
I know I promised I would have a post ready for my new blog,
but I had some technical problems...Technically, I got lazy.
I'll have it ready to post tomorrow...Really...I mean it this time...Don't believe me?
Come back tomorrow and see for yourself. LOL!
