Shisha

Yesterday I slowly stitched a small
piece for a birthday card to a friend

Bright pink Dupion silk with shisha. It's a small piece,
about 6 x7 cm.The shisha are 0.5cm, snipped to size
with my special cutter. On one of my journeys I watched a
young girl attaching really tiny shisha in a slightly different
different way, using very fine thread. She kindly showed
me the technique, which took a little while to master.

They look like little jewels, surrounded with French knots,
then I found my sequin pot and went mad!
