Chapter Seven

My workbook - images 40 & 41
Final two samples for Chapter 7.  In Image 41 the bright orange satin used for the middle layer has not scanned well - the colour is completely lost.  The colour I am talking about can be seen in the photograph of my display board below.

My workbook - images 38 & 39
Samples three and four for Chapter 7.

My workbook - images 36 & 37
I have really enjoyed this chapter.  I have not done much hand embroidery before so this has been a great opportunity to practice various stitches.  My work is not very neat and the stitches are a bit uneven but I guess this will come in time.  First two samples for Chapter 7.

My new display board
As suggested, I have just bought a displayboard and I must say it is a great idea.  It enables you to keep all your current work in one place and great fun to pop into the workroom and look at your efforts.  The only disadvantage is that when you complete a chapter and put everything in your workbook the display board is empty.  On the other hand, you could say this is an advantage because it makes you start the next chapter quickly!
