These are some small embroideries done on wool fabric, with vintage wool embroidery yarns. Both are inspired by old ceramic designs from my collection- the first being a little pot in Crown Lynn's 'springflower' pattern (my parents' wedding set) and the second based on my favourite bowl that I've never used- I don't know the pattern name but it's by Johnson Bros.
It was nice to hear your clover stories yesterday- I will have to have a better look now that I know the four-leaved variety is really out there. Yesterday turned out to be quite an unlucky one for me (actually, only mildly unlucky in the scheme of things) which I am putting down to lack of sleep. I spilled coffee all over an embroidery I had just finished, tripped over, dropped my son's icecream cone on the pavement and smashed our car's front right light into the back of a truck. The truck, incidently, was fine, but sadly I had quite an audience enjoying my clumsy driving.
Here are some cheering things:
This house (belonging to Nanette from Rummage) is pretty inspiring, don't you think?
I really love these knits by Nicole... and in Wellington you could wear them all year around.
See you tomorrow!
