the sub-projects have sub-sub-projects. Here’s one of them:
It’s a small silk bookmark machine embroidered with Valdani threads, a new favourite must-have product for me, and padded with batting. I made it to test out the Valdani threads on silk Dupioni and also to make sure that the “pillowslip” method of backing a quilted silk piece would actually work.
Inspiration comes ultimately from Lorna Moffat’s book Silk Unraveled. I plan to post the sub-project soon (just have some hand sewing to do on it), and then the project itself in all its glory!
Last week I put in 32-1/2 hours, but unfortunately too much of that was in raging against the machine a.k.a. a rogue phone company that tried to slam us, and PayPal. At times it became surreal, and the PayPal thing isn’t over yet. At one point I realized it would be healthier to leave off the fight at least for a day or two in order to calm down.
