SAL 21: Making a start

Hi everyone, another 3 weeks has whizzed by and the evenings are drawing in quickly. I don’t know what it is about this time of year – but I just seem to pack everything away at 4.00pm and shut myself away in front of the fire! But I have managed to make a start on my blue wren (Kit by Jenny Adin-Christie). I have started with his tail – this involved silk shading three areas in three different blues before outlining with silver purl pearl. Blue passing thread was then used to fill in the remaining areas.



Happy stitching everyone.
Thank you for popping in. Happy stitching and I hope to see you all in another 3 weeks.

About wybrow1966

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school. We had a wonderful, white-haired lady who came in once a week to teach the 'girls' how to sew. I am not sure what the boys got up to during this time - but I never once felt as though I was missing out on anything. Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging. Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....

      Thank you – must admit the weather is beginning to turn. Not had a really cold night yet though!

      • 🙂 soon the weather will feel like winter. It is full on summer here, and we even had our first bit of good rain. Rained a whole night, which we need so desperately.
        Take care and enjoy the turning weather, specially all the gorgeous colours of Fall.
