Talking & listening to threads
Welcome to my blog. I will be posting about the progress of new works and generally letting you know what I'm up to.
Pictures of completed pieces and extra photos of new work can be found in the Image Gallery.

I've been a sporadic blogger at best for the last few months with nothing much happening on the stitching front. I've done bits and pieces but nothing for any length of time. Saturday just gone was one of our JE day classes and although I take my embroidery with me I'm concentrating on the students so I don't usually get much done. This weekend however, due to the weather here in Manchester, there was only one student so I did get some stitching done.

I read The Hare with the Amber Eyes last year and it left me with wanting to know more about Netsuke so a couple of weeks ago when I was lucky enough to be offered an advance copy of a new book about Netsuke I jumped at the chance. I'm so glad I did, the book is beautiful.

I put this design together for a Japanese Embroidery challenge over on stitching fingers. Thought I would share it with everyone else. This is jut a bit of fun, no specific rules, no timescale. Just see what you can make of the design & share pictures of your work on my facebook page.

I'm pleased to say that after endless amounts of short stitch holding on their hair and faces the Sho chiku bai sisters are completed ...I think. I'll have to live with them for a couple of weeks before I take them off the frame, just to be sure.
