Autumn Banner is Finished
The beads were sewn on last night and I triumphantly freed the banner from the surrounding linen! I wish I could remember the color of linen it's stitched on, but some of the threads used were:
Splendor silk, #S979
Waterlilies, 061 Harvest
And the beads I used were leftover dark mauve hex beads from "With My Needle" by Just Nan.
By this time the kids were in bed, so thought I'd lay out the fabric for the smocked bishop dress and get it cut out. As I'm still not very confident in my skills (maybe I'll get over it in another fifteen years), I work rather slowly, trying to get everything right. But cutting out a bishop is very simple is quickly accomplished. Today I'll try to get my serger out and sew the sleeve pieces to the front and back and I'll be ready to pleat!
