Yeah, reports completed! So time for a little sewing. I thought that this weekend I would have a break from my Jacobean crewel work and go back to a project I started a little while ago. I came to goldwork very recently following a day course at the RSN making a 3D bird – and was hooked. Since then I have completed a number of small projects made from kits by Jennie Adin-Christie. The latest kit is a heart shaped, millefiori brooch which I started back in May. Jennie’s kits are so easy to follow with full colour drawings showing everything, even down to your needle position.
I had already prepared all the padding, so this afternoon was spent adding metal chippings and beads. Unfortunately I did not finish the project and will need to plunge all the metal threads, but here is my progress so far…
Hopefully I should get this finished during the week. Meanwhile in the garden, the dominant colour at the moment seems to be purple….
There is just so much to fit into every weekend!
