Then, a few months back, I started doing embroidery on a new project which I am quite enjoying. Suddenly, it struck me …. I have a very old UFO project which involves embroidery squares for a quilt! Originally, they were to have been painted using those paint tubes with a ball point tip, but I decided they would look better done in embroidery. OMG, they are over 30 years old … yes 30!
So, now that I found them, there is a slight problem. Silly me, I put a straight pin holding a piece of paper onto each block in the upper left corner. Yes, they now have rust spots. Does anyone have any ideas on getting rust out of fabric? If I can’t get rid of the rust, then it’s time to become creative and work around the problem.
Originally, these blocks were going to be a bed quilt, but that idea has changed to a wall hanging. It will be quicker. :o)
Looking further at each block, I think embellishments and colouring the flowers with crayons. Yes, I think that will work quite well. Stay tuned for more on these as time goes on. There is a lot (A LOT) of embroidery to do and it will take me a while. What the heck, they have languished for 30 years now, so what is the hurry?
Have a nice day!
