The flower petals are coming along well. I'm attaching the wire edge now. after that I'll do the embroidery on the back. I use detached buttonhole to cover the back of the stitching so that it looks good. I'll probably run gold thread in the stitching for a bit of glitz.

Both the milagro and the vest are coming along. Yesterday more pearls happened to the vest. I am absolutely loving these 2mm pearls. they just sit so well on the fabric. I'm also having a lot of fun with the textures of the little heart. I think it's turning out not half bad.
I'm trying to get as much done as I can this week on these projects because next week I add another. I will be doing calligraphy on fabric, and then embroidering over it. This should be entertaining.

I'm teaching a class next week, and want to be up to date on some of the latest textile techniques. I'll also be doing some writing to explain how I think about design. Some of these excercises may work their way to the blog. (Or, they may not) Today and tomorrow will be a lot of cleaning and tidying of the studio so that I have space to think, and spread out.
