I might be on a bit of a smocking kick…


Ok, so not my most sucessful effort, it’s a bit wonky, but I wondered what would happen if I tried to translate a german brick stitch pattern into smocking.

It may be wonky, but I’ll wear it anyway, and I really like the white thread against the unbleached linen – even if the wonkiness probably wouldn’t be quite so conspicous if it was natural on natural.

You have to try these things, as my mother always says
