I also had to go to my dentist on Monday for my checkup :( All did not go well and I had to go back today for an extraction of a very BIG back tooth. While it was a painless procedure and only took about twenty minutes I think I will be feeling it once the freezing disappears. My dentist had one heck of a time getting it out.....I'm sure I heard a few mumbled swear words....LOL
I wasn't idle today though. I had this small piece of cotton that was part of a fat quarter bundle. It's very pretty but I really didn't think I could use it as it is.
The edges still frayed a bit because the cotton was very thin. Also, you can see in the picture below that the top left butterfly has a white edge that I didn't think was very attractive. As an experiment I used some Lumiere in Halo Violet Gold and slightly dabbed the paint on the edge of each butterfly. See the butterflies on the bottom and top right. Now the white edges can't be seen, there is no further fraying and there is a wee bit of glitter.
Now I have a bunch of kinky butterflies and dragonflies to use as embellishments :)
|I managed to get some paint on the bodies of a few of the butterflies as I didn't realize I had some paint on my fingers....ooops. No harm done though:)|
Tomorrow I'm going to another store that I do know has the right size of green silk ribbon I need. This time I called ahead. They have six shades of green so I'm spoiled for choice. It's a store for Cross Stitchers that has quite a selection of threads too:)
