Weekly Catch Up.....more embroidery samples

8th April 2018

A funny old week weather wise here in London!!

A lot of rain but a couple of really warm and sunny days when I was able to sit in the garden and soak up some sun, today however, probably because I had decided to go to Kew to see the blossom and Magnolia in flower, it is POURING with rain so have been doing some more embroidery samples for the book I have yet to make!


Fly Stitch.....


....added more in various thicknesses of thread...


....also experimented with the size of the stitch and direction....


....this is my Chain Stitch sample....


.....Blanket Stitch with variations!!


Today I made this using very simple stitches, think I will mount onto a card.

Yesterday I went over to Brockley to see my son and wife, just over an hours journey on the tube and train, very relaxing. There is a Farmers Market there every Saturday and as we had sun instead of the forecasted rain we spent a very pleasant half hour tasting/choosing our lunch! Lots of catching up over hummus, fresh cheeses, olives and of course Prosecco, a brilliant way to spend a Saturday.

Off on another house sit very early tomorrow, just hope the tubes are all running!!
