My slate frame came in the mail and it is beautifully made. Very nicely finished. Now I can be a real embroiderer.
I want to get going on the Flemish ornament so I tried dressing the frame. This is my first try after watching two YouTube videos.
Kind of a mess:
So I emailed Rachael and she gave me some pointers (one of which was to try again).
It isn't easy as you are juggling four strips and needle and thread at the same time. The second time worked out a bit better.
I hope it isn't on there too tight.
Next step: trace the design onto the satin material.
I felt very fortunate to have the right kind of pen and a light box.
I'm hoping the embroidery will hide a multitude of sins!
