Anyway. The Victorian Lady silkie was voted off the island, but left a big white hankie (with remaining pinholes from stitches) behind. What to do? I auditioned vintage millinery, thought of embroidering over it, adding lace, and killed a good afternoon deliberating. Finally, I thought I’d try a teapot applique.
First of all, here’s the area in question, before:
And here is the “after”. Yes, I drew the teapot all by myself. As proof, I offer up a spout whose proportion is too heavy for the handle, LOL. Oh well, this is my Tea World, right? LOL
And in my Tea World, pink floral teapots pour pink floral sequined tea into floral cups. And vintage millinery mingles with dyed lace, velvet leaves, crocheted flowers and vintage crystal earrings.
Meanwhile, some of the dark patches are getting their florals enhanced. Nothing too exciting there, but overall it just adds a bit of zip. HA! This piece is zipping all over the place!
And now it’s time for me to zip off to bed. I’ll show you some more progress in a day or two.
