snowed in

This is what to do when you're snowed in!! make sloe gin!!

Here's one I made earlier

more silk and embroidery

it's all silk and embroidery in the workroom at the moment.
The yellow embroidery is beautiful with gold work and silk, rather old and a bit fragile, but I picked out the best bits. not sure where it's from, we had a job lot that included a lot of ecclesiastical pieces. I have imagined some poor priests being mugged for there embroidered cassocks by mad seamstresses!!

working away

I've been busy in the work room , it's cocktail jacket season. this beaded one was so heavy as the beads where glass, but I do so like doing the hand sewing. how to make a beaded edge go round a corner.!
