Last night I worked on stitching the applique pieces. Almost finished. All the stems had to have a couch stitch because they are 1/8″ wide. Took quite a bit of time to get them done. I used some of my new South African hand dyed threads. They are so wonderful to work with. This morning I started work on the borders. Decided on 1″ HST using Japanese wovens. I starched the wovens before cutting and stitching. Figured out the layout and will stitch together tomorrow. Tonight I will finish the appliqué.
