Work has been continuing on my cake sampler by Rebecca Ringquist, and then at midnight inspiration decided it was the right time to start to machine stitch the border –
Often when I work suddenly late at night I undo everything the next day, but I really like this. I was struggling to work with the pink background, but the border seems to bring the hand-stitching and backing fabric together (there’s more pink in the fabric than this photo suggests!)
Then I felt the need to embroider some text at the bottom…
I think this will be done in the next couple of days, and then its onto my next Cake Themed Craft Project – this cross-stitch pattern from Defiant Damsel on Etsy
The only problem is that I have some storage issues for my embroidery supplies – any ideas?! Maybe just being less messy is the answer?
