SAL 42: Slow progress, but a little in the right direction…

Hello everyone, another three weeks have shot past and life is still as chaotic as ever but I did managed to find a couple of hours today to work on my little blue wren etui, designed by Jenny Adin-Christie.

I have been adding a little texture to the base and managed to create a few fluffy, mossy hillocks out of embroidery thread.

Since the picture was taken, I have added 4 more tufts – I think I might have gone a little overboard! At least it is a little progress in the right direction!

Many thanks for popping in and look forward to catching up in three weeks time.

Happy stitching.

About wybrow1966

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school.

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....
