First Kiss


Again another transfer. I promise that's the last one for a while, but you have to fill the sheet up don't you!!!  Just simply transferred onto a piece of white scrim and mounted onto a piece of duck egg scrim and sewn onto a backing piece which had previously been dyed.  I hand stitched with embriodery thread the 'x's and then attempted to write 'first kiss' with the thread.  For a first attempt at the writing, I think it's come out ok.

Your transfers are coming out really well, Sam - not sure you need the SH, lol. You can do it fine without.

I really need to try some transfers - mine have all been rubbish up to now - must get my head around it. Yours are all fabulous and I never tire of seeing them. Fab stitching and the word is fabulous. Well done you - love how you are trying new things.
