Working on the grapevine going down down, Working on the grapevine..
Almost done with all the grapes, there are only two more clusters to go. Next up, Leaves of Doom. DOOM! Seriously, these things (in order to actually look like grape leaves, and not miscellaneous ivy) have teeny tiny serrations on all edges. I am not sure that is going to work in straight applique at this scale. Well, the only way to tell is to try one, and if it doesn't work, ribbit, ribbit. Another option is to add embroidery to make the serrations (a popular technique in traditional Baltimore Album applique) and if the regular stitching fails that's what I will do.
Check out other wonderful projects on Judy Laquidara's Design Wall Monday. Lots of inspiration and encouragement to be had!
