This Is Finished Too






I have just put the final stitches into Calico Garden. The top photo is the finished thing and the ones under it are close ups of various parts. I'm sending this to Kathy as she has admired it from the start, though I have no idea how she's going to finish it off. The designer finished some of hers by framing them with padded calico frames but I'm not clever enough to do that...yet. I'm sure she'll think of something - won't you Kathy? I'm now planning my next garden. I bought some more calico yesterday and some other odds and ends. A few of us are going over to Sheila's house next Sunday to do some more work on them so I'll take all my bits with me and start the new one then. In the meantime I have some WIPs to be getting on with, and as Miss Mary Mack is at the top of the box I guess she's it.

This is a really lovely piece of stitching with fab texture! I have worked encrusted calico but would love to have a go at this but am unable to find a supplier of Irene's Coulthard's book......was wondering if you knew of anyone that had an unwanted copy I could buy perhaps?

Beautiful piece of stitching, I love texture! Have worked on encrusted calico before but would love to have a go at this & was wondering if you knew of anyone that had an unwanted copy of Irene Coulthard's book they were willing to sell as I can't seem to get hold of it anywhere.
