Lynette's needlelace.

Here is a piece of needlelace which I did using a drawing from my archive of designs. Again another peacock! They do lend themselves to a lot of interpretation for needlework & lace work! Enjoy!

I have been busy of late doing Pulled Thread embroidery, & some Aemilia Ars Lace. I sometimes wish I could split myself in half so that I could get twice the work done! However while we haven't had much of a summer yet, all needlework & lace making is a welcome filler for the dull, cold days.
Here I have done a piece of Pulled Thread embroidery on a stylized peacock, with added beading for a bit of pizzazz.

More winter embroidery!

I have not been well but the good side of that is that I have more time to sit & stitch to wile away the time until I feel better again! I am uploading some more embroidery for you to look at. The one of the 3 flowers is a colouring page designed by Sandi Palmer, & it just begged to be stitched so here it is! The bible cover is taken from an extant piece which Elizabeth the 1st carried on her bible. The Pulled Thread picture was one I saw in an English "Stitch" magazine & was designed by Kathie Pirson. I have changed a few stitches & added some seed beads. Until next time Happy perusing!

Needle lace ginkgo leaves & dragonfly on Pulled Thread background.

Hi all, I have been through some terrible earthquakes of late over the last 9 months & it has taken its toll both mentally & of lives. However I am still here to tell the tale! I have also been to Coronary Care with heart failure but now have a pacemaker which is giving me a new lease on life.
I have been busy making lace & embroidering to keep me sane! I will post some more photos here soon as I finish items. Meantime I will upload a photo of needle lace ginkgo leaves & dragonfly on a pulled thread background, which I recently completed.
