Of course Reuben had to have a play mat and I really enjoyed doing some 'proper' patchwork to make this for him.
As I was otherwise engaged on Tuesday Ineke took over the teaching of my weekly Textile Inspirations class which is held at Littleheath Barn. During the previous session Ineke had been working on a scroll and as everyone was keen to use their machine embroidery samples produced this term this seemed like a brilliant idea to incorporate them.
I have sorted through some of my fabrics and samples, added a few screen printed sections and am now ready to compose and stitch.
I added to my collection of Namolio linen threads this week - let's call it an early Christmas present!
I'll keep you posted and thanks for visiting my blog.
