I like to make the most use of any piece of linen and this one is no exception. As well as the bookmark, this linen will provide a hardanger tassel and tonight I have stitched the 'skeleton' of four of the pieces.
Three are for the underskirt and are complete. The other three will have a cross stitch rose on each - this is over one thread of fabric. Message to self- do not even attempt that late at night or late in the week. Fresh is best with roses!
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.
