I can always do more than one post at a time! These are another four!!!

You know when you did dressmaking... you always tested the machine to see if it was stitching correctly before you embarked on seam sewing etc. Well...I obviously completely forgot about that stage... evidence in the photos!

I have to say that I do rather like the loopy stitches all the same. Gives a bit more texture don't you think?

This is the front of the piece. You wouldn't really know how much dodgy stitching there was at the back from the look of it!
Yes you've guessed it. Scrunched gold tissue paper bonded onto calico, stamped design (homemade, of course!), free machining.
You know, I think I do like the other side better!
Think I'll go now....

Then there were four...

These are a few images from some of my recent, surprise, surprise, heart brooches.

The first two photos are from my large heart brooches. They get a lot more work done on them. I've applied some transfered dyed velvet and some additional free machining and then I'll bead them before finishing them off. I'll sometimes do some embroidery on them as well.

These two photos are from my small heart brooches.

What about the title? Well for some reason I can only get Picasa to upload 4 photos although I had tagged six. I tried to upload them from my usual source but blogger wouldn't take the. So I had to go back to Picasa hence the four!
This is what happens when you are not really computer literate, havent posted for a while (sorry! :o() and the grey cells are failing! Maybe I shouldn't overdo the excuses!!
Oh well I'll have to do lots of posts now if I can only upload in fours!!!! :O)
