We have had a lovely day today – three of my friends from my medieval group came to do some embroidery and we had a very nice time, researching, chatting and stitching – oh and having very nice food including spice cake – forgot to take a pic of that before we ate it!
Here are Kerry and Lynn deciding on which projects to work on.
Tracey looking very studious.
Kerry and Lynn decided to do goldwork and Tracey needlepoint. This was Kerry’s first attempt at goldwork and she decided to do a little flower – a borage – in couched thread on a white silk background.
She did a brilliant job and by the end of the day had completed all of the couching and beads – she just has the silk shading on the petals to do.
Lynn did two projects – the first was based on a Bess of Hardwick piece – this is the outline of a goldwork project.
The second was a flower motif taken from one of the books which Lynn is couching onto red silk.
Tracey’s piece is a complex picture of herself and her husband drawn onto linen and stitched using tent stitch. This is her progress so far …
We had a lovely time and hope to arrange another day soon to do some blackwork.
I will leave you with some pics of the girls all dressed up in kit at our events.
Do hope you have had a nice weekend – thanks for visiting.
