Here are a few pics of the Underbrush work I’ve been doing…the melted sequins meant a few casualties – particularly one large cream flower sequin which ended up looking like a blob of chewing gum. Charming. So I had to scrape that off and sew another one in the same spot and melt it again – but a bit more cautiously this time. Thank god for baking parchment, it works wonders! I kept my mini ironing board on my knees as I was doing it, and the warmth came through it, which is very comforting when you are sitting opposite the heater in a chilly caravan.
