atc from Jackie

This is the atc from Jackie for the hand embroidery net swap. This is the first atc Jackie has made I think she has done very well and finished of the edges very neatly with ribbon.

ATC Spring

Just one atc I have made for the Hand Embroidery Net the theme is spring. The daffodil has been taken from an old transfer-no-I cant call it old the popular word is now vintage. I have used double knot stitch buttonhole stem satin and chain stitch. Quit a lot of different stitches for this small embroidery but it looks quite good. I have a lovely card from Jackie that I have just realised I haven't taken a photo of but I will. See my link to the group on the side panel

Tulips on the Embankment

This weekend is our May Day holiday today Sunday has been grey windy and not very warm so just the day to go out in the car to visit the Embankment alongside the River Ouse that runs through the town. The colours of the tulips were wonderful eye candy every year the council plants the beds with a lovely display of spring tulips I only wish I could paint. One year I will try an embroidery of some kind. I hope tomorrow our bank holiday Monday the sun will come out.
