I’ve stitched the lotus like “flower” – three times…and to cover up the junctions, I placed a small circle on top of it all. Did it according to Sandra Leichner and it worked much better than anything else I used 🙂


And no –  the urn is not that terrible wonky – it just look that way.

To be able to continue, I needed folded bias-strips and have now made a tidy amount of them bias

Since they are so narrow (just short of 1/4in) folding 5/8 strips into a third and ironing them down = slightly scorched fingertips 😉

New nails, this evening I’m going to get new nails :-D. OK I am a bit vain – so what?
