A Better Day!!

22nd March 2015

We went to Hampton Court early this morning and had a stroll along the river....

....rowing boats all ready to set off...


....seagulls resting happily on the sign and railings....


.....a punter....


....close up of the tree and mistletoe...


.....this will give an idea of the size of the tree.


I managed to complete a lot more than yesterday!!
The yellow 'lumps' visible around the grid are the knots on the starting threads and will be cut away, I still have to complete the grid and finish 6 squares but I was seeing patterns more easily today!


This beautiful work was done by a 16 year old who is hoping to study for a degree in textiles.


I am really glad I did the course and loved learning about counted thread work, think I will be experimenting when I get home....
