A double helping today, with the second foxglove and three more ferns all added to the panel.
As with the first one, I added the stem of the foxglove first, by couching gold thread:
Then added the top and bottom flowers, to help with the spacing:
And then added the rest of the flowers in between:
Here's the full panel, with all the flowers added so far:
Not far to go now, just the third-last fern:
And the very last one (well, for this panel, anyway):
That was the last bit of appliqué to do, so now all the flowers are on, and ready to edge:
Shortly after taking these photos, my old camera finally died. I've borrowed my dad's for now (thanks Dad!), but I as I need to get a new camera anyway, I'm going to upgrade and get something a bit better than the little point-and-click compact cameras I've had up to now. I live in hope that this might improve the standard of the photography here and on my website, but as this is likely to take a bit of practice, don’t get your hopes up too far just yet!
