The front is finished, I really enjoyed this, it’s quite textured. I designed my own back.
I now need to find time to make the scissor keeper, I’m thinking about adding a ribbon, to truly keep both together, after all I really need to make sure my special gold work scissors stay for gold work.
As some of you know I’m working my way through the royal School of needlework’s certificate in technical hand embroidery.
My canvas work is coming to a close now, so it’s time to prep for the next module, I’ve chosen gold. I’ve never worked with gold threads before, I’m slowly improving, the second teardrop is much better than the first.
I’ve started a new embroidery kit by Lorna Bateman; Twirls & swirls – beaded scissor keeper ( full kit) , even comes with with the scissors & full skiers of thread.
Now to start adding some beads.
Yes!!! I have reached the top of the design. 😀🎉👍. However, I still have loads to do.
My exam classes being on study leave has given a little more time at the weekend, but those exam scrips keep coming in. Now the light has gone, I’ll get some more papers marked, then I can hopefully work on the sky on my day off.
Over Christmas I’ve been busy working on my canvas module ( for the RSN), I’m trying to get the sky done. I still have plenty to do.
My slipper orchid decided to bloom ( after 2 years), it was worth the wait.
I finally finished the roses before Christmas, to give to my Mum.
Who loved it.
The turtle dove is finished
