STARTED NEW PAGE FOR FABRIC JOURNAL


I've made a start on a new page for the Fabric Journal.
The Goldfinch is finished and I have another sampler page on the go but I'm sort of hooked on the Shisha embroidery at the moment.





I'm working this one in a large hoop as its easier to do the shisha
This time I've coloured the linen to give a background.
This will be lots and lots of colour.


Now I'm covering it with shisha embroidered daisies.  Lots of bold bright colours.  Really enjoying this.

Car boot tomorrow,we've been waiting a long time for this one to start, the field has been so wet he was unable to put one on until now.
The weather is supposed to be nice, just hope we have the energy to get all round. lol

  7. "Shisha"? I thought shisha was a kind of pipe smoked by Turkish men in the back rooms of smoky cafes. Your embroidery is coming on nicely Briony. I look forward to seeing the finished article.

  12. I took my tablet into Crafty Club on Monday, one of our ladies is a big fan of yours. She was telling someone about this, and I hadn't seen it.

  13. That's so pretty and I love The Goldfinch too, stunning work. Your fabric journal is going to be a treasure. I do hope that Princess is on the mend, it can't be much fun for her with her leg bound, poor puss.
