Hello everyone, I do hope you have all managed to enjoy Christmas. Ours was very quiet – just the two of us (and dog), but it was also quite relaxing as there was no pressure to entertain or get in the car to make the numerous visits we normally do.
Now that I have finally finished my little blue wren etui, designed by Jenny Adin-Christie – he needs a base to sit on, which also provides a place to put a pair of embroidery scissors and a little pin cushion.
The first job is to cut out and mount the velvet base onto a white cotton backing using herringbone stitch. Then mark out where the pin cushion will sit and the embroidery will go.
Once in place I made a start on trapping spangles in a green organza. These will create texture over the base.
So that is what I have managed to achieve in the last few weeks – not much I know, but a step in the right direction. Many thanks for popping in and look forward to catching up in three weeks time.
