I am back! Sorry for the few days off, my brother-in-law came to visit and we have been getting over being ill and the effects of giving up caffeine which are not all what you would expect! Who would think sciatica is a known side effect of giving up tea! Ouch....
Today I started work on my sparrow commission, he came on nicely this morning and I hope to do some on him each day. Tomorrow I will be starting the main stitching. I always start on the beak and face, because if they go wrong and he looks grumpy it is best to know early!
I have been commissioned to make 50 Christmas cards, so that will keep me out of trouble for a while! I have printed some deigns onto tea papers ready to machine stitch tomorrow
I live in Newcastle (UK) and I have been a professional embroiderer for over 10 years.
