Remember this?

Last September?

It became this...

Jacobean Crewel work

and here are close ups of each detail

It was great fun to do and gave me the chance to play with embroidery stitches
which I don't get to do as often as I like, especially during the design and paper sample
stages of the C & G modules

Having said that Chapter 9 and 10 of Module 5 have been fun if not very colourful!

See the Module 5 blog for details

Happy Monday

Finally downloaded photos from the new camera.
Yes I know I got it for Christmas but ...

Anyway  new Chapters added to Module 5 blog

Chpt 8 - Chpt 11

Still can't figure out how, after I've rotated the photos on the computer Blogger still wants to show them on their sides.  Don't blame me if you get neck strain!!!!!

And this is why the labour pains are worth it in the end...

Sirloin Steak with Olive Mash and Watercress

Victoria Sandwich
