Clingfilm

Thankyou for all your lovely comments everyone - they are very encouraging. I have curtains to alter, a garden to weed and numerous other jobs around the house but sometimes it's good to do something fun.

Snippets of lightweight fabrics on a cotton background with the outside ring of a hoop beneath .......



Clingfilm carefully laid over and the inside of the hoop fitted all ready for some machine embroidery to hold the snippets in place ...............



Machine embroidered, ironed beneath baking parchment and fitted into a small hoop ready for some embellishment ................

Lovely silk cup.
I can only reply here to the thing about migraine. Its never happened before, and it was unintelligible, not just the wrong sentence. actually, when I come to think about it,it happened once before but I put it down to taking very strong painkillers..solpadol, but maybe it was the migraine that time too.
