A start on Life And Liberty

I got my Life And Liberty kit out yesterday, after a bit of gardening in the morning. I didn't feel like doing much else apart from stitching, so I thought I'd indulge in my favourite past time. This is going to be so enjoyable I can tell.

SB Life And Liberty - started 26 December 2008


It's stitched on 32ct Antique Ivory linen with a mixture of beautiful silk threads (Au Ver a Soie, Gloriana, Thread Gatherer, and even a Soie Belle). I love the delicateness of stitching with one thread strand at a time. I'll look forward to posting my progress pics for this one. Next I'll work on the sheep. I love them, with their dark faces and legs. So cute!

Yummy silks Jane. Isn't it nice to chill out doing something you love after the pre- Cchristmas busyness. Enjoy your leisure time.
