I have been continuing the embroidery attempt #1 since the end of last week. I have managed to outline a couple of little vintage fabric pieces for an art project with the blanket stitch, a chain stitch, a runnning stitch and then I ended the border with a herringbone stitch. Although, I have found that some of these stitches go by slightly different names depending on what source you are using.

I hope to have the embellishments finished in the next couple of days, so I can mount these pieces before the weekend. I will be sure to share the outcome as soon as possible. Ooh, I think the sun is finally coming out today! Maybe those outcome shots will be early next week. ;o)
Check back in a few days for more pictures of completed clothing alterations. And, don’t forget to call for an appointment (804-536-4465). I would love to help you solve your alterations problems. In the meantime….
