My posts have not been very regular I am afraid, sorry. I have started running and I am so shattered afterwards that I am not useful for very much! That would explain why this page has taken so long!
I think I have finished it now, the leaves have had the veins painted on and they have been sewn down I couched chenille stems and little stem stitch small stems. I also made a love-in-idleness flower in stumpwork (which is new to me) and hid it under some of the ivy. Again the picture is a bit washed out. Sorry.
James' brother is coming to stay for the weekend, so it is very nice to have finished it before he comes and to have a break so
I live in Newcastle (UK) and I have been a professional embroiderer for over 10 years.
