Heirloom cloth ...

It's finished. I am thrilled with how it's turned out. A result of Karen Ruane's Embroider, Embellish, Create course. All white and embroidery filled.

Vintage cloths sitting alongside new cloth. Prairie points, rouleaux loops and appliqué.

Secret pockets and hundreds of French knots.



  1. just beautiful! I am close to finishing mine as well. Yours turned out so lovely.

  2. I'm doing the next course. It will be a massive challenge for me.

    1. Lynn you will have a fab time doing this - I hadn't done much hand stitching for so long and now I can't stop! I had forgotten how much I enjoyed hand stitching and I think that fme has been the trend for so long that its good to get back to traditional embroidery with a very up to date feel. I must keep an eye on what you get up to!
