Would you believe this???
I actually started my March page quite early since i knew i was taking an on-line class with Sharon Boggin. (It is just fantastic though i really don't like embroidery:)) My block was going really well, and then i had a decision to make: should i 'velvetize' the leave first, or sew the beads onto the stems? Well i choose the later, so that when i used my heat tool to riase the velvet effect of the MArvy pen, I MELTED MY FIRELINE and had to rebead the stems!!!!! Needless to say, i put it aside for awhile (!) but i just finished the stems and i must say it looks great. I think I will add some luminerie paint to the lady's dress, and then sew the backing on. Of course, my picot edging takes me awhile to do, so keep an eye out - it soon will be done!!!
