The first set of flags are done! This is my big accomplishment this week. There were 8 flags in this set, all of the same design, but with 4 different background colors. These are made from poly china silk/lining material. They involved appliqueing a large design onto the background, trimming the background away underneath, and fray checking. Lots of little issues with this one. I can't share pictures just yet, but will share this one. To reward myself for completion I ordered the 4" and 5" Gingher Julia scissors to go with the 8" ones I received for Christmas. Here is a peek at the flags, boxed up and ready to go. I need to pick up the basement and start on the next set which is 14 flags.
This week I also finished my Wendy Schoen Le Jardin Sewing Box. I decided not to put it into a Sewing Box, but have sent it off to be framed. This was a class I took with Spirit of St. Louis Smockers, several years ago. Not sure how long ago it was. I realized after I sent it off, I made some mistakes on threads on the center section.
