Lots of pictures today because a lot of damp stretching went on last night. I was awake until 4 am as I had to drop my men off for their flight. What to do to pass the time? Stitch and stretch of course. There are three pieces of work here. Two white sections that now need to be added to my wrapping cloth and a surface for hand embroidery that I created using paper, silk and vintage scraps as in my extending embellishment class. On the white pieces there is cutwork, applique, a variety of hand stitch, prairie points, lace and loops. I will add these to the cloth over the next couple of days and when my girls have seen that I will show you too.
I am going to hand embroider on my other surface, add mirrors and perhaps a little lace. I will have progress for you on that tomorrow.
The house is empty and beautifully quiet. I am going to clean and titivate....see you soon.
