So that Battenburg Lace hankie is not going to plan. It seems that the ink from the pattern is transferring onto the lace so now it looks grubby and there is a possibility it wont clean up well. (If I were to do this again, I’d put a layer of tissue paper between the print and the lace so I can see the pattern without the ink transferring. Read on to figure out why I might not do this again.)
The hand sewing is boring…. And the stitches, though more exciting look like crap. It looks like it is being done by a blind 5 year old. But the thread would look so nice as a needle tatted lace and needle tatting goes so quickly and looks so nice! Sigh, so now I am distracted by some needle tatting….that totally does not meet the next challenge goals for HSF, which is try something new.
