Slow Stitching







I have still been working on my very large textile hanging this week, adding small hand stitches all over the embellished wool and silk.

I like to keep coming back to it between my smaller projects, the hand stitching is slow but relaxing.

Another piece to add to my altered book is this stitched Clarice Cliff pot, I'm not sure yet how it will all fit together with my lady and vintage fabric, I will keep experimenting.
I nearly forgot to say thank you to Julie at http://mixedmedia-jem.blogspot.com/ for some lovely cards, which I won in her give away.

Love, love, love the Clarice Cliff pot. The colours are so vibrant and the vintage lady is very stylish. Interesting to see you working on something a little bit different. Can't wait to see it all put together.

Your work is always beautiful and your blog always a joy to visit. Slow stitching by hand is such a pleasure isn't it. Although it takes longer, it brings quiet time to think and plan and put the world to rights! I've just got back from holiday and catching up. I managed some hand stitching while I was away and found it so therapeutic. When I've got some of my challenges out of the way I want to do more hand stitching ...

Have a love week Kayla

ps. I'm having a giveaway on my blog ... ends on Valentine's Day!
