After several very hectic weeks we seem to have found some time to relax this weekend and we have tomorrow off as well. It is the Queen's Birthday Holiday. Anyway at last I have had time to really play around in the sewing room. My thumb is still very painful so I cannot do a lot of hand embroidery so the pleated silk piece has been set aside.
I have been thinking about doing some machine stitching for a while so I took a piece of hand dyed cotton which is one of Vicki Welsh's pieces.
