Here is a first picture of the Garden of Semiramis. Although...there is no garden yet...lol. This month we got the frame and 2 pilars. And that's quite a big amount to stitch. I finished yesterday the frame minus the beads and crystals. And I think I have a little break with Semiramis and do something else before I return to the pilars.
And I got notice that Laurie received the piece I stitched for her for the Woodland Exchange from HoE (Hooked on Exchanging). It was really fun to stitch it and to finish it as a sewing pocket. That idea of a sewing pocket came to mind after I saw the "The Travelling Stitcher" from Little House Needleworks. Deborah was a darling and posted some close up pictures of her pocket so that I got an idea how it's done. Wasn't that difficult in the end. With the exception that I'm not able to sew a straight line with my sewing machine...even if my life would depend on it. Not that this minor detail has ever stopped me using my sewing machine...lol.
Stitched on 32ct Belfast linen "Light Mocha" using Needlepoint Silk and Gloriana Silk
Finished as Sewing Pocket for Laurie for Woodland Exchange
