Annie asked how I constructed my fobs I am happy to share and hoope this is of use to someone.
When I stitched the thread tag above, I was presented with a problem in that I had stitched my design using a lovely Sampler thread called Briar Rose, and I could not match it to make a cord , I did however have some silk fabric that was a perfect match. I have mounted it so that the silk shows round the edge, and am pleased with the result.
To make a Thread tag this way you need two pieces of cardboard, first cut one piece of card on which to mount your embroidered piece. Mount this first, using the thin wadding behind the stitching.
Look back at my last posting and take a closer look at the thread tag that Joan sent me.
She used a neat way of making sure she mounted everything straight, by backstitching in a contrasting colour where she wanted to fold in, and leaving it there as part of the design. Here is the back view of her tag which has a special touch with a border enclosing her message.
Today the mountain looks just like the photo at the top of my blog.... a good day for sitting by the fire and stitching.
