So I finished my quilt and then first question people asked was what are you going to do next.
I figured I should finish off a few things, before I started something new.
I started this piece at a course at the Royal School of Needlework in November 2008 and it has been sat in my work box ever since.
Hopefully I remembered enough to finish it off ok! The last little bit was on the big leaf. The toughest part I find for this technique is to keep the direction of the stitches right, especially round curves. Obviously that’s also one of the most important parts of the technique!
I will be going back to the RSN in a couple of weeks to do my first module of their Certificate in Needlework. I’ll be doing a 2 week course in Jacobean Crewelwork, for which I’m meant to be working on the design at the moment – hence a long over due blog post!
