This is lesson 2 of my diploma in technical hand embroidery with the Royal School of Needlework. I’m trying to get as far as her chin for next time.
I have finally finished my kit, it was started before the new Millennium, when I was visiting by Mum & Dad in Atlanta. Mum took me to Michaels for the first time, being from the UK I had never seen large craft stores on this scale. I got this in their Christmas in July event, again something I hadn’t seen before. I think that is why I remember where & when it arrived in my stash, it’s good to see it finally finished.
Now what next …. something new or something from the stash??🤔
Recently I’ve been practicing my white work skills in preparation for my next large piece of embroidery.
I’ve been trying out white work with this little kit.
Finally finished the leaf, for my royal school of needlework certificate in hand embroidery. Now on to the petals
No cross stitch this time, as I’ve been busy finishing off my gold work. I just need to finish mounting it, & then it can go in for assessment.

I haven’t done anything much to my cross stitch, but I did fancy starting the pin cushion kit from my kit stash

Here’s my progress on the ‘Hoo Hare’. I’m going to work on the head & ear next.
I’ve finished my scissor keeper, it was a kit by Lorna Bateman. I added the ribbon to make sure the expensive gold work scissors did not go missing or get used for other things.
I designed the back my self.
I still have the thimble keeper to make, I thought it might be good to keep the beeswax in. I have another couple of Lorna Bateman kits waiting too.
