Wrinkles and all

I like to make the most use of any piece of linen and this one is no exception.   As well as the bookmark, this linen will provide a hardanger tassel and tonight I have stitched the 'skeleton' of four of the pieces.  
Three are for the underskirt and are  complete.   The other three will have a cross stitch rose on each -  this is over one thread of fabric.   Message to self-  do not even attempt that late at night or late in the week.   Fresh is best with roses!
