My embroidery cupboard already has way too many small pillows but the chart I received at the Sampler Gathering seemed to cry out for this finish. I’m super pleased, even with the colours, but it will reside in the cupboard to become unviewed and probably unappreciated 😉
If you see the back you’ll understand why I felt compelled to stitch this.
The linen was originally Permin#32 and was buried in mud for many days following the fierce cyclone in February. Sherelyn and her friends laundered and relaundered many times to get the linen to this “antique” (let’s be kind, it is stained) finish and renamed it Gabrielle Linen.
Today I have tacked out the linen to make a start on a new project. Antique white Belfast linen and DMC 930. What will this turn into I wonder?
