Here is my page for August for Needlework masters Monthly stitch-a-long, the panels in the fan are Wessex Stitchery, these were stitch as examples when I was teaching this technique. The little blue beetle was fun to stitch specially trying to make the two sides of him as close as possible.
For my second technique I have added a piece of surface stitchery ( bullion stitch roses) This is from last year's monthly project
A lovely surprise that arrived in the mail this week was from Heather who made this delightful Kanzashi flower. she saw them first on Lang's May page for Needlework Masters Monthly stitch a long and found the templates were available here in NZ Thank you Heather, I will find somewhere special to hand the flower.
Now its back to the fireside and my stitching.
