I have now finished the stitching for the glass candle holder. It was not as difficult as I had anticipated to attach the fabric to the glass. I simply glued the thing on! I used a PVA washable glue which is transparent and does not leave a stain on the fabric. So I just cut the finished fabric to size and folded the short ends over a bit and glued the whole thing on. Worked a treat. The finished design is fine and is deliberately light. I intend to do some more as presents for Christmas. Here is the finished holder.
I am continuing with some more practical projects. The current one is a series of bookmarks. All will feature traditional Palestinian patterns. I’ve stitched one and almost completed another. Two more to go. Good stitching!
