Oh Happy Happy Day!
At my house we are doing the...
The stitching on my UK trip book is finished. It will be finally finish-finished onto the book cover and will look like this.
At the moment it is only pinned on but I couldn't wait to dance the dance! Belgian linen has an open weave so I intend to line this with a piece of doctors flannel and then stitch to the fabric book cover. This has been hard work - one thread of floss over one thread of 30 count fabric but I have thoroughly enjoyed the dreams I have stitched into this. Anticipation is in every cross!
I have the Trip Book ready. I have the money in the bank. Now all I need is the time and the freedom. Look out UK - here I come (one day).
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.
