A strange thing seems to happen as I get close to finishing work on any piece of embroidery that I am really enjoying – I get to a point where I almost don’t want to finish those last few stitches because the wonderful journey of creation will be over. However the journey is now over for this fine Whitework piece.



There are some wonderful techniques in this design, and I have especially enjoyed the the drawn and pulled thread elements, and finally getting to reveal the embroidered net. My trailing however needs work.

I did actually manage get the Embroiderers Workbasket finished And out of the hoop in time to use the hoop for the next class, and now the creation journey is underway again on the next wonderful Jenny Adin-Christie piece – her stumpwork Wren.   Jenny’s website.
