The 2017 Christmas ornaments are done! I was in such a hurry that one is already wrapped and ready for the post. But here are the others.
And now I have started another. My good friend Kazumi fell in love with this snowman kit which had Aida fabric and thread of unknown provenance. I swapped out the fabric for a 36 count linen even weave and am now stitching. Believe me each cross is a labour of love!
It has been a really busy two weeks back at work and I am once again in sleep deprivation mode. However tomorrow I have the afternoon off for an appointment which should also be a good opportunity to sew the cover for my piano. Recently we moved furniture around so that the DBEM doesn't face into direct sunlight which makes her vision even worse. And the piano is therefore living against a different wall. To keep the dark wood from changing colour in the bright sunlight I will be like my late Grandmother, suitably Victorian, and cover even the legs on my piano;-)
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.
