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
This time I have actually managed some back stitching
Finished all 3 birdies, they will be hung on my little tree later today
Have any of you played this game
We got it as a quick game to play over Christmas, it’s really good. You have a currency of buttons & you buy patches as you go, to place on your quilt board. All the patches are different sizes, you can only buy any of the next 3 patches in front of the marker ( if you have enough buttons) you get extra button income from the buttons on your quilt patches. It get interesting when you start to become unable to fit patches on the board ( especially if you have a tactical opponent such as my husband)
If you would like to see what the rest of the group are up to & stitching, please follow the links below.
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.
Please follow the links below to see what the rest of the group have been working on.
The embroidery part of my pin cushion is finished, I just need to make it into the pin cushion

I haven’t done anything much to my cross stitch, but I did fancy starting the pin cushion kit from my kit stash
Do have a look & see what the rest of the group have been up to
Here’s my progress on the ‘Hoo Hare’. I’m going to work on the head & ear next.
