Stitching in 2011
A number of readers have asked if I had a personal challenge planned for this year, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to share a peak at something in which I have become involved.. I have taken on some model stitching for a lovely lady. I've included a photograph of her book for your information. I am going to be stitching some of her past designs and a few new ones.
Jennifer Forest has a passion for history, and historical needlework/textiles. The above book shares details of womens' interests in the time of the Jane Austen novels, and I personally find it extremely interesting. Please take time to visit her blog: http://sewing-box.net/
I have completed one article for her to date, and will be doing a few more from time to time throughout the year. Of course, this is not the only stitching I'm hoping to do, so will hopefully have much of my own work to share.
Thank you again everyone for offering support for those in need. The time will come when we can be of some assistance. All we can do is wait until some normality returns to our beautiful State, and indeed those to our south. We have had three days of sunshine here, so that's certainly a start.
