Amazing What You Can Do...
... but you have to try. Just thinking about it, won't do it, though a certain amount of thinking time is definitely desirable. On Thursday, I wrote a post about the beginnings of a fascinator; you can read it here. On Friday, I did what I said I would, and put more stitch onto the petals. Today, though, I assembled what I think will be the final shape, though it's difficult to tell. The photograph above is undeniably abysmal, but is the best I can do at the moment, partly because the fascinator doesn't have a base yet, so has to be held up, and partly because Robin is in bed with manflu (again...), and isn't around to take the photograph.
The close up, above, is a bit better, and gives you an idea of what the additional stitch on the petals looks like. I'm fairly happy with this piece, though I want to add some more of those beige feathers round the edges. And then, it will just need to be added to its base. I love doing this kind of thing, it's frivolous and fun... and will be a big part of Myrtle and Rose's output, to boot.
