MARCH- BYZANTINE EMBROIDERY


Here is Lyn's Photos for March I am amazed at how she is fitting the challenge work into such small spaces. My piece below finally finished the hem took so long specially finding a suitable thread to go with the fine count  linen I used, I finally settled on DMC Flower Thread which I knew Jan had a full set of.

THE ITALIAN LOVE AFFAIR

Both Lynn and myself have finished our January pieces, the challenge was Assisi embroidery..

Lynn has a large piece of material that she has divided into squares and plans to fill a square each month, and she has given herself a real challenge finding a design that will fit into her small square




I am making mine as small 10cm square mats.  the one is on 40 count linen and stitched over three fabric threads. I wanted to do the rolled hem that is used on this work..... a little more practice on the corners are needed

ANN'S WORKBOX

 The Lid was stitched on 40 count Lambswool Permin Linen over two threads. I have many quaker patterns and have made my own design to fit the box lid.

I thought you may like to see the things i have put into my box. The accessories are mainly stitched on 40 or 35 count Permin some over one thread.

Christmas with Heather







have sent you photos of my latest decorations for. Christmas. I  had. fun designing the bell out of a square of fabric as seen on Pinterest by us. didn’t quite get. the  rounded bell shape I was expecting but they look great on the tree. A good way to use up smaller pieces of fabric. The trees are from the sweetheart tree series and I have more to complete. Enjoy. Love Heather.
