......The embroidery work is now complete.
Red berry motifs are being auditioned.Fortunately, my stash includes two bins of ultra-suede scraps which translate well for small motifs where texture is beneficial. I like to trace the design onto freezer paper, press it to ultra-suede and cut out using a very sharp small scissors. If necessary, a dab of glue can be used to hold the item in place as it's hand appliquéd in position.
Once the accent motifs were in place, as much of the stabilizer as possible was trimmed away. Next, as you can see by the needle and thread, I began the tedious task of carefully stitching the edges of the hankie to its background.
