I hope you're not busy...it could be a long one today. Embroidery, that's what you came for I presume.....well the silk is extended and still in progress. I have added a strip of the 'shisha' style buttons to the edge of the larger piece. Are you with me? You saw it pinned last time...I am now in the process of adding French Knots, more French Knots than you can shake a stick at actually. At the moment they extend to a mere third of the whole edge..a long way to go with this. It was damp stretched last night though in order to show it here looking its best. Unfortunately the photographs aren't the best...terrible cloud today. I have photoshopped them but this is the best I could do...sorry.
I am also preparing for the start of Embroider Embellish Create in January. A LOT of interest, thank you all so much. The top picture shows some of my progress for that..getting ahead if I can.
as for the loose ends, well that was one of them, a reminder about the class...the others? First of all the give away, remember? It's here and I will be drawing that as soon as I come back after Christmas so if you want to be part of that then pop over and take a look.
The other loose end.....well in case you haven't noticed it is Christmas....so by way of spreading the good cheer I thought I would have a little sale in the shop...yes, the long neglected shop. So if you go over to Contemporary Stitches and put in the code happydays at checkout you will get 10% off. Need any floor cloths? scraps of paper for shopping lists or to put under the cats litter tray? sorted.
So I will say goodbye...farewell...I am signing off for a week to partake of mince pies, chocolate, turkey and Christmas cake.
Wishing all of you the most magical Christmas xxx
