Frustrated ....... by arthritis in my arm ......
and no hand embroidery this week.
So I decided to make a simple machine stitched postcard - a kind of stitch sampler.
Next I embellished it with bits from the scrap box, a lace initial, buttons, Broiderie Anglaise edging with hand dyed silk ribbon, and flower braid.
Not my favourite thing but it passed away a few hours!
It looks nicer than it shows here as the fabric is a pretty pale blue, not dull as it appears.
