This is my Christmas Tree this year 2010. Lots of craft pieces from friends, including swaps and ones I have made.Tatting, Beading, crochet, cross stitch, hardanger, quilting, machine embroidery and machine made lace.
This is 'In the Arms of an Angel' by Lavender & Lace. It is one I stitched years ago, but I am re-framing it to hang for Christmas. It is stitched in stranded DMC with beads. The majority of it is worked 2 threads over 2 threads of the 32 count linen, but the face, arm and baby are 1 over 1. It makes a much finer look.
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.
