Embroidering

I haven't shown much of my work lately. ( Some may think I've quit sewing and embroidering completely ) But I am still enjoying it very much. Since a couple of years ago I have been working with white on white embroidery. I started with simple small letters but gradually tried out bigger and more challenging patterns. I adore the padded look of these monograms, this one I've just started. A few stitches more, then adding the flowers. Excited about the finish. Eventually it will be a part of a Christmas stocking.
 
The weather is lovely, it's like the sun is giving me a tight warm hug. Makes me happy. I think I will take my work with me outdoors...
 
 
Wish you a beautiful day too, and a great start to the week.

Prachtig borduurwerk Aina, zelf heb ik er het geduld niet voor en bovendien zijn mijn handen er niet meer toe in staat.

Hier is het buiten ook lekker, heerlijk om nog van de zon te kunnen genieten!

Lieve groet, Ingrid

Det låter härligt att kunna sitta ute och brodera. Och så vackert det blir, jag älskar vitbroderi och klumpsöm! Den sista benämningen är så ful till något så vackert! Och så är C min fösta bokstav i mitt monogram.
Har du sett de två vackra böckerna Lin&Linne av Ewa Kewenter och Brodera i vitt av MarieNoelle Bayard?
