Seeing double!

Autumn is upon us and the leaves are starting to turn and fall – where does the time go? Another three weeks have passed since I last posted my progress on I the little peacock sewing etui designed by Jenny Adin-Christie. Here is where I was up to the last time you saw it…..

Progress has been slow – but there is something to show you all. I managed to get the second half of the ribbon work complete. The two sides are not identical, but Jenny does advise that you cover up the first half and try not to copy it – so that is what I did. Here is my progress….

I know it doesn’t look like much progress, but 1 side is an afternoons stitching – would you believe!

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. 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.

    It would be hard to tell that the two sides of the ribbon work aren’t identical. This is just so gorgeous! Wow!

  2. Absolutely stunning. I really admire your work and the sides look very similar, it would be hard to tell that you had covered the other side up while you worked. Nature isn’t always symmetrical when you think about it.

  3. If you told me it had taken a week to do the second side I would’ve believed it. It looks so complicated!

    looks very intricate to stitch ^^

  7. I’ve not used that particular material, but I’ve used silver plate in a similar structure, and I find it very easy to believe that one half took all afternoon!

    Worth the trouble, though – it looks very fine indeed.

  8. This is such an interesting project Deborah. Can’t wait to see how it evolves!

    It looks like very tricky work but you’ve done it very neatly so all worth it. I love the gradient it gives.

    It’s hard to believe that that’s an afternoon’s stitching — I would think it would be much more! As always, your work is so inspiring. Beautiful!
