Today I went for a walk to say farewell to my favourite season - Autumn.
The temperatures say winter but the day was golden, although by the time I went for my walk the sun was almost gone.
This is the progress shot of my Trip Book Cover.
Stitching over one requires concentration and my nephew has been staying for the past couple of nights so I haven't been stitching much. Last night he was intrigued to watch me make a twisted cord to complete my Scottie Mitten. I hope to sew that in place tonight. We have a public holiday on Monday to celebrate Queen's Birthday so I hope to make some more progress then. Tonight while I am talking I will start a piece of Sashiko- surely I can't go wrong with running stitch?
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.
