My sewing room (above) is the fourth design I have worked from my Veronique Enginger book. I am taking a break from this book now and want to work a few things a little bit different.
This cross stitch Atelier sign is for the door of my sewing/craft room. I tried out some fabric oddments, ribbons and other craft bits and bobs from my stash before deciding how to finish it.
Here is the finished sign......
I just need to fix it onto the door now.
I fell in love with a Sue Hawkins meadow flowers biscornu design with stumpwork poppy in a copy of Stitch magazine last year.
I bought the materials pack direct from Sue which uses Oliver Twists spun silk.
I haven't done any embroidery for a long time so I really enjoyed making this. The poppy and leaf is in stumpwork which I have only done once before.
Here is the finished biscornu......
My sewing machine has not been idle and I run up this little linen bolero jacket from Simplicity pattern no 1984.
Amongst my current projects is a piece of filet thread crochet worked on a size 1.50mm crochet hook! It looks like an old rag at the moment but am hoping once it is finished and blocked it will look o.k., fingers crossed.
