My Whitework embroidery is finally finished & handed in for assessment. My own design, from my research on traditional Scandinavian patterns. The design is a combination of pulled & drawn thread techniques.
Unfortunately, it became a lockdown casualty, being left cut & the hem started for over a year. I’m overall pleased with it.
One of my kitchen cupboard doors had gone all wrinkly, having nothing to loose, I pulled off the offending inner panel, painted it dark grey ( it took several coats) , stencilled these lovely hares in copper, followed up by several layers on Matt varnish.
It’s been returned to the kitchen & it looks fantastic.
We decided to visit the craft fair at Hyde Hall today, I was extremely good & didn’t buy anything.
I managed some wildlife photography, a little mouse watched us eat our sandwiches, but skittered back into the bushes as soon as I picked up my phone.
I now have plenty of ideas for the front garden makeover, I think it’s going to take a while. As currently our front garden is a huge holly tree & box, that has attracted box caterpillars, so is starting to look rather unattractive. Oh & quite a few weeds.
And finally some more wild life photography. The sun shone & we had a lovely day out. I didn’t buy any plants either, but loads of ideas.
