Finally, Darcy is finished. I buttonholed all around the letters and added some buttons and some tatted butterflies. A framer locally cut a backing board for me to stretch it over and has made a frame. All that has to be done now, is put it in the frame. Then it will be on it's way to my granddaughters bedroom. She is only just one year old but in the future it will help her recognise her name and teach her the letters, as it did her sister, when made I one of her name.
My Mum taught me to knit when I was under 5. She also taught me to make clothes for my dolls and I eventually made them for myself and my children. When they were gown up, I discovered embroidery. This came from the WI, then the Embroiderers Guild.
This blog will show my work, including anything stitch related.
