Yes I did promise myself to do a blog entry a day and I've broken it already. Don't know where the weekend went to.
I finished my blackwork leaves last week and have done a small sample to see if I could do some embellishment but I should have embellished the felt first and then done the stitching as the embellishing seems to distort and fuzz the blackwork and the pattern is very unclear, so I'm not going to do it on the leaves.
I've also picked up my crewel work again which got sidelined. I'll take a picture later and show it to you.
Back to writing my design and history projects now that Christmas and New Year is over. These are both illustrated studies but the history one also involves written work, I've finished the Tudor times and am now researching the Stuart period.
