I continue to stitch this large panel on a daily basis...all hand stitching as my needle guides me....I add extra scraps of lace and fabric as I stitch....

This lovely photo was taken by my brother Roy whilst walking near Heartswood Forest at the weekend...particularly poignant....because his new heart valve is one year old today!

I found these vintage items - a hand stitched collar and a beaded waistcoat on the EG Sales Table at our Stitch on Saturday meeting....I gently washed both articles and here they are looking sparkling....

Such a wonderful venue for a textile exhibition....'Curiouser and curiouser and curiouser' - and I wasn't disappointed when I stepped inside. 02 'OTT' an Essex based Textile Group exhibited the most amazing artworks based on Alice in Wonderland.

Look at these tiny Pixie Boots, so beautifully stitched and embellished by my friend Trish Zachariah. I absolutely love them and had to share them with everyone.

Embroiderers Guild members enjoyed a wonderful evening together at Chiswell Green - we all took old/antique embroidered items for everyone to see. Some amazing items on show.
