Oh boy! I finished this. Finally. I have to say this was the most challenging row by far. First I struggled to find tea bag paper – not to be had where I live – or something that would give similar results… I settled on Vliesoline, which is kind of a fusible, but was really fussy to work with and I have to say I did not enjoy making this row.
Anyway, it’s done! And I know I was right thinking I don’t like appliqué or curves (possibly its only the combination of both, but I’ll be steering clear of either for at least a couple of years).
