I've just had some time to do a little sorting out and found some old samples of mine, This is a simple crewel work, worked in only four colours, two colours in each design, and using all my favourite stitches.
I love the laid work because its so pretty, and you can decorate within the lattice work however you wish. Looking at this makes me want to do some more crewel, but no I must finish the sea picture first, and anyway I really want to revisit as many techniques as time allows. I really want to do Blackwork again, and more silk shading, and top of the list this week is Stumpwork. So little time so many ideas!!!
