very festive with the gold-thread, **********
lovely job waterlily *4U
Thanks so much!
Hi Colleen, hope you can sort out the edge. Do you have an overlocker, you could do a rolled hem all the way around it. If not hand stitch it and just stitch onto the edge. Good luck Yvonne *4u
I hand stitched tham, and they look fair. But...I'm planning to fill it with crepe paper and silk flowers. I hope that will detract from the not so nice edges.
Glad you could save it Colleen, well done
Gee, I hope you can fix the edges.
Thanks! I kind of have them taken care of.
It is still beautiful even though it separated.
It still looks great. Hope your folks enjoy their anniversary.
Thank You! I can't wait to see their faces when all their loved ones gather to celebrate with them!
Beautiful, so sorry it separated! It does look like metal mesh, I hope you can fix it successfully, that's a lot of thread in there! Hugs, Marji
Thank You! It isn't really falling apart, so, I hope a few stitches will help make it better.
Cooleen, it is too bad this happened - I hope the hand stitching works - I would put WSS under it and try working with a stipple stitch on your machine - or a zig zag - unless you don't feel comfortable doing that. Good luck - *4U
I actually HAD thought about zig zagging it on my machine, but I wondered if it might pull too much and cause more seperation. I think I'll try it on kust one panel first and see how it works.
That may work. It is a shame that happened with all of the stitching that went into it.
I know, and the thread was not exactly cheap. At this point, with so much money to still have to put our for the party, I really can't afford to buy enough thread to try again. Nevermind the fact that it wasn't the easiest thing to work with.
I think that you should be able to do that. Sometimes if you do not have the stabilizer tight this happens, but I am sure that you will be able to fix that. But this does make it look as though this is made of metal mesh.
It looks almost like a metal sculpture. Very cool!
