Last night I sat up until this was fully completed. Today it gets parcelled up with some goodies to be sent to ... well I wonder where this one is off to? My embroideries travel more than I do :-)
I lined this small sweet bag in Ukranian Whitework with a bright red Japanese silk which shows well through the Drawn Thread panel. The "round" eyelets are a special feature of Ukranian Whitework and the rhythmical stitching of these is positively soothing. Fortunately the book from which this particular stitch was taken has many others and I have two pieces of fabric and their matching threads already organised - but shall I start the Mulberry or the Aquamarine??
Self control means I will complete the page of my Anne Book this week before allowing myself a new start.
Now to go find the Tangerine Chocolate that is to be part of this package.
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
