Blissful weekend stitching!
Four pieces ready to quilt and bind - Since the Love Nest I'm enjoying quilting as a way to finish my embroideries so I'm trying to make it work on these new pieces - tricky tricky!
I have been in french knot heaven with this piece. It reminds me of my Grandma. As a young girl in the 1930's she worked as a tambour beader for a company on Oxford Street - stitching thousands and thousands of tiny glass beads onto debutantes' dresses!
I tidied the workroom in December. I'm quite sure that's why I achieved nothing in January. Happily it is now looking rather like a whirlwind hit a textile mill and working has become much easier! Is it only me who finds that tidiness stultifies creativity? t.x
