I'm enjoying my "diversion from planned route" into Marken Mice.
Three are in the process of escaping from needle and linen.
Stage one is the foundation - not your normal Kloster Block but over six fabric threads.
Stage two is cut threads, woven bars and eyelets.
Stage three is filling stitch.
Apart from one frustrating episode of reverse stitching these have been a therapeutic diversion but will soon be complete and it will be back to Arabian Nights:)
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.
