WIPOCALYPSE - FEBRUARY

Well there have been a number of items shuffling themselves about on my sewing table, shoulder charging each other out of the way, trying to gain the upper hand to be the poster girl for Feb.  And to be fair I have not been exclusively stitching one particular thing - God Forbid!!!! I did take up some Christmas ornaments that I had started at the beginning of last year, and then had to do some unsewing (which I hate) - so put those to one side, then there was the swan tapestry. Then there was an embroidery thing that I uncovered in the sewing room, in much the same way that an archaeologist would in Time Team.  But in the end I decided I would put in the one that I enjoyed stitching the most which is the tapestry............




Happy full moon to all wipocalpysers!!

  1. This will be a superb piece, how do you plan to display it when finished?

    I have tried tapestry before but have never quite mastered it.

  10. I can recommend tapestry to everyone....rather relaxing after cross stitch, and you only have to sew it once!
