I'm working hard creating this website. For lack of a 12 year old tech assistant (a modern child) in my home I've put myself through the grueling 'learn how to do it yourself' technique. This is not for the faint of heart.
Moving on - the photo on the right is another color way for the Elegance pattern. This embroidery is a work-in-progress. The blue colors give it a more 'country' look. There is no sparkly background. Instead I've added a few other motifs to fill the blank spaces left by this omission.
As you can see there are a lot of blue marks outlining areas that need more work. This is the Washout pen that I love to use made by Marvy. I recommend this pen highly. Whenever I want to change a marking I take a small piece of wet cotton, blur the old line, wait until it dries a bit then draw in the new line a bit darker.
Never be afraid to use your own colors!
Try this: Shrink this pattern to make a Wedding Ring Pillow. Add the ribbon to hold the ring in the upper circle - omitting the Inner Crescent, Star and Rosebud Vine. Use the wedding colors!
Try this: Make a small pillow or pouch for the bride's garter. Use a sexy glittery black thread in the Background and add bold colors. Present it at the Bridal Shower.
