All better now, I think - I used the Rainbow Galleries "Petite Very Velvet" - which in basketweave looks just like a patch of velveteen. Now to find my stash of stuff to embellish. This is on top of an awful but hopefully temporary move, living out of boxes in my daughter's garage - that sort of thing. Oh yes - and buying a new digital camera that I am too stupid to use. Oh well. Learning is good.
