On to those lady birds now. I think I have tracked down some crochet cotton in silver that is almost the same thickness & shade.
I have a new project to practice my embroidery stitches on. I’ve chosen pink, mauve & yellow to work in. If it works out well I might make it into a cushion for our granddaughter ( hence the pink)
Here’s my progress
I’m attempting to practice covering up all those black lines & getting smooth edges.
It’s quite a fun design, isn’t it.
Done a bit more to the cushion cover. I still need to track down some silver thread, that I’m rapidly running out of.
It is finally finished & mounted. I just have the paper work & a label to make for the back. Then in for assessment at the royal School of needlework.
My hand quilting is still progressing.
Yes , Mum took pity on me & finally finished the zip. It’s been quite a while that Betty has been wearing it & I have been taking photos of shawls draped around her. I’m not even sure where the pattern is?? Tomorrow I think I will wear it to school.
😁Thanks 🙏 Mum 😘🌹🌹
Here’s my progress over the Easter holidays, I think I’ve done rather well, I’ve almost finished my homework. Back to school tomorrow ( I got an extra day , it’s my day off) & my exam classes are all doing tests so that will be probably it until my next lesson. I’m really pleased with it so far.
