Things can sometimes look a little odd when they’re only half done…
…and Gareth and I are both agreed that this little beastie with his face half couched looked remarkably like Hannibal Lecter in his hockey mask

No, and I actually audibly chuckled when I saw/read your post… which is a rare (possibly a first) event in my blogging experience.

Really nice to see this close-up of the stitch in progress. BTW did you see the thing on Richard III last night? much harrumphing from the medieval historian.

This blog is solely for textiles, with a little bit of silversmithing now and then, and will mainly be for my historical stuff.
Please do not use my images or pin them without permission.
My interests range from ancient greek to tudor periods, and I tend to be an artisan rather than an academic - not that I don't do research, I just prefer getting my hands dirty.
I dye, spin, weave, sew and embroider, and have been doing so for several decades...
If you click on the thumbnail images in this sidebar, they will take you to tutorials and finished pieces
