I have been having fun with lots of different embroidery lately, made lots of little sample brooches, each with a bit of stitching, either mini hardanger, bullion knot roses and flowers, gathered ric-rac flowers etc. to work up ideas for mini workshops. Also did a lily type flower on a 5 inch hoop and several pieces for Embroiderers Guild travelling books. My most difficult item in the last month was just a little sampler from the book Crewel Intentions, the patterned needle weaving was very taxing!!!!
Currently have several things on the go, still doing a needle painted hedgehog, a stumpwork mushroom and oak leaf picture.
I did a load of natural dyeing with friends at the beginning of the week, lots of lovely coloured fabric and space dyed threads to use over the next few years!!!!
