What's happening in embroidery school? Pockets....and ledgers....puffy things, oh and a lot of gimp which is fast becoming my new obsession. I resisted the urge to use gimp in this embroidered piece, piping cord won the debate. It was hard, I struggled to ignore the gimp but think it was the right decision.
The loops which secure the piping cord are stitched using my new, coloured coton a broder (25) It's quite a fine thread, beautiful to embroider with. I am sure I will be using it a lot more.
My tatting needles are still in transit. I am anxious for those to arrive as I can't wait to try it. Let's hope I'm not useless at it. This will hopefully be receiving a little more attention this week too. Watch this space.
