These two photos are of a quilt I recently made from a 'Charm' pack. A 'Charm' pack consists of 48 squares of coordinating fabric 5" square. The one on the left is the front and the one on the right is the back which was made from my 'stash' which are fabrics I just had in my store!!!  

This sampler was worked on 16 count fabric in cross stitch using 2 strands of DMC silk and a small amount of gold thread, the corners are tartan ribbon as it will be a Scottish wedding. It is in a box frame.

Here is the photo of the finished cat that I have embroidered for a friend from a kit which I am quite pleased with.

This is a sampler I made up prior to the exhibtion at The Clarendon Hotel, Gravesend. It shows a variety of stitches as well as a Celtic Cross which I did for the Travelling books project!

This butterfly is from a counted black work design by X"Calibre, which I found in a shop in Rochester. It is black work and cross stitch with beads , when I started stitching it I didn't want to put it down.  I am very pleased with the end result.

This is the reason I joined the EG , a day school advert and a friend who was a member encouraged me to attend the day school run by Jenny Adin-Christie  in gold work , this was the finished pear which I am pleased with.

Our granddaughter is interested in elephants,and when I came across an old copy of Stitch with this elephant I had to do a version of it for her 21st birthday. Thankfully we are both pleased with how it turned out.  I hadn't embroidered anything like this before I had to try out how to work the Shisha mirrors which didn't go to well. I have embroidered it onto lining material backed with interfacing and used beads instead of sequins.

This piece is called 'Winter Trees' and if you click on it to see a larger picture, you can see that it is really wintery.
This appliqued hanging, I made as a wiresult of the project wth the 97 Group. It was my first attempt at Applique and I know I need to do some quilting on the hanging, but that could well be a job for another day!
This is the first piece of Hardanger I have done and I learnt the technique at the 97 Group.

I have recently become a member of North Kent Embroiderers' Guild and have gone along to the 97 Group where I am learning different forms of embroidery. This photograph to the right is an example of Blackwork, worked in red.


And this is an example of Shadow Quilting. Both forms of embroidery look difficult, but they are quite easy to learn, when you put your mind to it!
Here is my piece of embrodiery finished, but now I need to make the cushion smaller - strange how one job leads to another!
