MY PIECE

My latest little bag, is what I sent to the Regional Exhibition, the theme for the exhibition was Celebration and I called my piece "Birthday Gift for a Tudor Princess." The work is not really what would have been stitched in Tudor England, although small bags were popular gifts, I wanted to create something that suggested a very special gift with lovely beads, pearls and stones tucked in between the stitching. The shape is also different from what I have done in the past and I think could be improved on, however I love the way the edging at the top came out and what you cannot see is the petite bead that are stitch on the whipped bars. The M on the back with the gold crown is for Mary Tudor all part of the fun of designing, is planning it with someone in mind.
