How does your garter grow...?

Mary, Mary quite contrary
How does your garter grow?
With silver threads and silken flowerheads...
And prettiness all in a row!

New work...COMPLETE - Budgie

Slightly over deadline but here's the final process of embroidery ON the chosen garment - a 1952 tiny girdle (seriously if you were a size 6 why would you even want to wear a girdle? unless of course it had been embellished with a budgie and stuff)... the first new piece especially made for my exhibition ; onwards and upwards.If I'd have thought of doing an animation before I started it may have been a little more thoughtful... but hey - next time!

I have already started on my next piece... embellishment rules.

And on the twelfth day...

Claire had almost finished piece of work!
To be fair there are still 10 hours left to..
finalise a few small areas, cut it all out, apply it to it's 'ground' and then tomorrow (I am guessing) somehow make it look as though it has always been there.
