Watching Cricket & Stitching
During last week I dyed quite a lot of lace and some doileys.
I often buy linen and doyleys from op shops and if they are stained or torn they are ideal for a change of colour.
I am continuing to work my way through my stash and pieces that I have stitched but not used.
This is one of the first pieces of silk ribbon embroidery that I attempted.
It turned out to be ideal for the front of a needlebook. (yes I know I have plenty of them).
This was fun to do. I used up lots of peices of felt and the inside is a piece of cotton I have had for about 10 years. I really like the colours and shall probably keep this one for myself.
