With one week left until I can continue with my Jacobean crewelwork, I decided to make a start on the little heart brooch, designed by Jenny Adin-Christie. It is the last of the three kits that I bought from her. As with all her kits, everything arrived beautifully packaged and labelled and included a very comprehensive set of instructions with full colour illustrations.
It was lovely to get back to some goldwork – I really enjoy this technique, although it is tiring on the eyes! I spent an afternoon and evening preparing the padding and stitching the outline – now the fun can begin – adding colour, beads and sequins!
Hope this will be a nice addition to my brooch collection!
