It started with lots of very lovely comments left on my Swaledale wall hanging post. I was really touched by your kind compliments. On a high I popped over to Pink Feather Paradise to say a little thank you and found I had been given an award and even more compliments. I was overwhelmed! I'm not the most confident when it comes to my own work, but your words gave me a great boost.
So once more THANK YOU. Having your support and being part of this special creative community means a lot to me. My days truly do sparkle because of you lot out there!
Heck! I'll be blubbing in a minute. Don't worry normal service will resume over the weekend, I've got some embroidered bunny bits to show you. (Oo, that sounds a bit odd.)
love Fi x

Sorry these pics aren't great but it just gives you an idea of what the frames are like. You can just see the foxglove pic on the screen in the middle of the photo.

This is what my bedroom window has looked like for over a year. Yes you can plainly see a pelmet rail, kindly put up by my lovely Dad, waiting forlornly to be dressed. It has looked very unfinished until now.
Here's my sketch book page with my idea for a lacy tie back, which as I'm sure by now you have surmised, has turned into a lacy pelmet.
What do you think? I'm a little miffed that the light shines through and shows the seam up the middle of the pelmet, but it was either that or have two seams either side. Apart from that though I'm thrilled with the outcome.
All the vintage French lace and most of the crochet doilies came from a box purchased at our local auction, for £8.
I've decided that although I didn't want tie backs, they really would finish off the window. So I best get cracking.
Thank you Lesley for setting this challenge. I started off not wanting to do it and now have a unique window dressing and one of my many unfinished projects finally completed into the bargain!
