A Little Progress

Time in the studio has been limited these last couple of weeks. Ive been busy packaging patterns, delivering orders and trying to design this new project. It would help if i didnt keep changing my mind, so progress is slow on this tablerunner :

One stitchery is finished and today i played around with some possible layouts. There will be 3 stitcheries divided by pieced blocks. Heres a close up:

The fabrics r so soft and pretty, so i tried to incorporate that into the stitchery. I trialled using just one strand for the scroll work and i like it, much finer and delicate!!!

The second stitchery is underway:

If I have time (im teaching this project in Feb as part of a workshop, with some other very "special" designers YAH!!), I think ill whip up some placemats to compliment it!!

A commitment free day for me tomorrow, so i plan on spending the whole day in the studio working on my "ever growing" pile of projects. Unless the phone rings...............
