I have started embroidering one of the simple stitcheries for my new tablecloth. I haven't made a final decision regarding fabrics for this project. I will be going to South West Spring Quilt Festival in Exeter in the coming week and as we all know, there bound to be something more interesting then I have at home :)
When I was writing the post about Mary Thomas's embroidery books, I realized that I haven't done any "proper" embroidery for some time, not since I finished the Casalguidi sampler.
In the same book by Via Laurie, where I found the Casalguidi project, I found my new project, called "Floral Delight" in Jacobean style. You would expect to see this kind of design done in Crewel work, but this embroidery is done with space-dyed threads on silk.
