I picked up this little bag kit, when I visited Greenwich Observatory. It was a great physics trip for the sixth form
Yes that really is dot to dot embroidery!!
This is the first little guy to hatch. I’m now waiting for his mates to hatch. Luckily their osier willow food plant has started to grow too.
Still working away, another one done.
Here’s my progress to date.

It’s been a while since this project has been worked on, over a year at least. I noticed it in my craft room, pulled it out & I have been working away. I still have lots to do!!! I will try not to wear a hole in my finger, I’m not good with thimbles & leather finger guards drop off.
Anyway hand quilting makes a mindless stitching change.
This week I’ve been setting up my moth pupae out for spring pupating ( or hatching), in a small net cage. I have a larger cage & I am now wondering if that might have been better.
Here are the occupants
A cinibar moth & an orange tip ( below)
And now we wait…..
Meanwhile, my willow food plant is now growing in the conservatory. I have yamamai silk moth eggs stored in the fridge, I’m going to keep them there until the willow outside starts to bud.
Two embroidery practice trees.
One is completed using 2 strands & the other using 3 strands of embroidery floss.
Now what to try next.
