No, the knitting did not get started. I picked up another project and am making good progress now on the Flower Initial.
As a lover of counted work I never find free style embroidery easy but this is coming along well. This choice of shot silk from my stash was not the most inspired choice as the colour makes a hard base to match floss but so far so good. Hopefully in the weekend I will get a photo in natural light which may show everything up a lot better.
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
