More goldwork finished

You may have been wondering why I have not posted anything lately.  It is because I have been so busy with my goldwork.   I have really got hooked.

Yesterday it was the exhibition of work which our branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild holds every two years, and I really wanted to get it finished and framed. We had a great day and raised money for our local hospice.

At the beginning of the week was our monthly meeting, and we had our annual competition.  This was my entry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The prize was won by a stunning picture of a lady, done in black cross stitch, from an old photo.  It could probably be described as blackwork.  If I had remembered to take my camera with me yesterday I would have been able to show you.

The last two evenings have been spent finishing some Christmas cards for a Christmas Fair at the beginning of  December.  Now I think I will finally get round to learning some Hardanger stitches.  I have rooted out some fabric, and my book, so I have no more excuses.
