We live on the North coast of Spain and our summer temperatures are never very high but last week we had a heatwave and we had to travel inland to Leon where the temps are much higher... higher! - 38 deg. C...... I thought I might melt and in fear of that hunted about for the little fan I bought a couple of years back. Of course it needed a holder.
I found a lovely little blackwork design by Lesley Teare called `Blackwork Lady´ and decided to use DMC colours to match the fan
I added a few touches of applique to her head and to some flowers instead of the called for embroidery and added a couple of beads, - just love beads. I backed the holder with purple velvet and lined it with the purple satin.
As always I didn´t use the fastening that I want because I can´t find a shop that has small pretty snap fasteners, only large dark ones, so at the moment I have used a small transparent snap until I find the ones I want.
Thank you for passing by, see you next week.
