The class was held at this Community Centre - a hundred year old School Building which has been refurbished and is in use for everything from embroidery to Scottish Country Dancing and yoga. The rooms had enormously high ceilings and large windows so we were flooded with light. My photo doesn't really do that justice but you get the idea?
The project is counted work so I'm very happy and feel as if I have made great strides. We stitched from 9:30 until 4pm and since coming home I have been busy and now have only a couple of rows of cross stitches to do and my homework is complete.
Tomorrow we add flowers, button loop, and a linen button which we make ourselves.
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.
