I've begun basting the cord down on Rachel's veil. It's much trickier basting it on a curved, draping piece of fabric instead of the nice taunt, flat muslin I am used to. Sylvia drew out the flowers and I'm using that as a guide for basting. For a dyed in the wool counted thread enthusiast this free wheeling stuff is a big stretch! In the photos you see the muslin with Sylvia's sketching in black marker and the cord I've basted. So far I'm happy with it, though it's hard to see what it will become at this point in photographs. I can't send you what I am seeing in my mind! I do have to crochet some more cord which will give me something to do during these chilly afternoons. Stay warm out there. Unless you are in the Southern Hemisphere. You stay cool!
