SAL 30 – My little blue wren

Hello everyone, I do hope you are keeping safe and well during the lockdown. I have been making slow and steady progress on a number of unfinished projects, including my little blue wren kit by Jenny Adin-Christie.    Three weeks ago I had finished the tail section and the wren’s head and back.

I then set to work on the chest area. This is worked using a combination of sequins and curled metallic purl. The area is first outlined in with rows of sequins in different shades of blue. Then the centre of the chest is filled with interlocking layers of metal purl to give a very textured finish. So here is where  I am up to now….next stop the wings.

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....
