I hope that everyone has had an enjoyable Easter Sunday. We started the day with a long walk with Poppy and Blue and got caught in torrential rain a fair distance from home.
Hot showers and cups of tea were required on our return home and the afternoon and evening have been spent in front of the wood burner stitching on Ellenor?
Here are the latest bands, only two more (ableit large ones) to go and she will be finished.
She is the prettiest of samplers. There are alot of similarities in the design to EK 1653 so the bands seem familiar.
I have spent time this weekend watching Mary Corbett's video on stem stitch and reading her articles. It was very interesting reading about S and Z twisted threads and then practicing the stitch with the thread above and then below the needle and seeing the different way the thread sits.
There is so much to learn about needlework and I am enjoying sharing this journey with you all.
