I have added to a few more squares on the canvas and I am addicted.
I can't put it down---well I can but it keeps calling me back.
I have decided to take it out of the wooden frame which it was in as I found it to heavy for me to handle.
My little fat hands were aching from trying to hold it up
We had marked the canvas out into 4 squares which meant that I was able
to cut the squares out and sew each one into a piece of calico and then
hoop them up into a lighter round frame.
I have added to three more squares--the top right corner is done in Raised Chain Band and I used a hand dyed silk ribbon--the second row left side is a metal "thing" to which I have added fat Bullion knots and some French Knots and the third row on the left side is a variation on Cashmere stitch worked in two different threads.
I have added a bit more to this row mainly in Wheatsheaf Stitch and various threads.
I hope you enjoy looking at these and I am sorry that you can't enlarge them but I don't know how to fix the problem.
