As much as I enjoy the embellishing phase, it is not all enjoyment. I look at other people's work for inspiration and ideas and often end up being discouraged that my effort isn't up to par.
I'm trying to have the seam embellishments as varied as possible. I'm never quite sure what to do or how to do it, but if I get a seam or two done a day, weekdays, I'm happy. I did one this morning before I left for work. It is a crocheted mesh with ribbon pulled through. It's a tiny bit short. Should I redo it or try to add on at the ends to elongate it? I'll revisit it when I get home.
I am finding others' websites with stitch directions, especially Rissa's Pieces, very helpful.
And yesterday on one of the web lists I read, there was mention of a site of Victorian embroidery and crafts. The internet is such a wonderful resource.
And with that, I'm off to surf.
