This isn’t going my way so I will reroute myself…

So that Battenburg Lace hankie is not going to plan.  lace 5It 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.
