      Top secret 😉
      No, it’s not really. Just darning on top of the fabric: ie do about 7-9 longish straight stitches into the fabric, then weave the thread between the stitches, going down into the fabric at the end of each row of weaving. Very easy.

    Beautiful stitching, Karen. I wonder if it was your card for your mum…? I had a lovely day, thank you and hope you and your mum enjoyed yours, despite emergency dog diet queries from strange folk in distant isles…..

      Janice, I had a lovely hand crafted card from Karen in the most delicate colours together with a cream silky tassel, heavily beaded in soft creams and pearls. The heart shewn in the photograph is part of the embroidery on the back of a memory bag which is beautifully crafted as only Karen can. It comprises of so many different pieces of lace and fabric in whites, creams and the palest of pink – absolutely stunning! I am so lucky to have such a thoughtful and very talented daughter, thank you so much Karen!

        PS – I clicked the wrong button and so missed telling you about the silk lining of the bag, which has a background of lilac, pearlised soft shades of blue, cream and beige criss-crossed with black lines and decorated with butterflies. The exquisiteness of the bag has to be seen and felt to be appreciated and then there is the surprise of the beauty hidden within when the bag is opened and this lining revealed. Such a joy and will be treasured always.
