Pleated Lace


I was going to pleat the lace round the oval, in fact I did and it just didn't look right so I just made a pleated lace border, that way I can enter it on the Just Magnolia Challenge. After I coloured Tilda to match the Wild Rose papers I realised that I should have used the colours the other way, orange socks and blue dress but I couldn't not use her she might have ended up in the bin.
The wand gave me a bit of headache since the star strands are impossible to cut out so I used some silver thread and 3 tiny punched stars to replace the ones I cut off. All finished off with a touch of Stickles.

I was quite cross with myself yesterday, Saturday night was a hot, muggy one and I struggled to sleep, in the morning I told my DD what an awful night and she said "Why didn't you get a fan from the little bedroom, there's at least 2 in there." There was no answer to that, how stupid am I not to remember the fans obviously not in the Hot Summer mode yet especially has it only lasted a day!
