It was damp and cold today, so I stayed indoors and actually began something new……using the embellisher I made these..
They are the usual silk and wool fibres on felt, and you may well guess that they could be a landscape of some sort, but they need a whole lot of stitching so you will need to wait until it is completed and I post a photo. I’m just so glad to be doing something textiley again, and what’s more – I, who once swore off cross stitch on the grounds that it was just too damn difficult to count threads, have started again. Mad, I know, but I’m taking the easier way out and using Aida instead of the 32 count linen which I used to use. Someone is going to receive a gift in due course. And no, I have not made a mistake – the pattern shows a difference in spacing at the end – but it annoys me, and I think I shall probably change it.
