Once again I have been a terrible blogger. I am just struggling to get time to post and time to visit everyone blogs. I have however been very busy stitching.
The most recent finish has been a Stacy Nash piece from her Handwork Club. This is the first piece from the series. I used some wood shavings to fill the pillow, just the stuff you buy for the bottom of guinea pig cages and it worked very nicely. The pillow is quite heavy and the filling spreads out quite well, yet gives the pillow a little bit of a primitive, lumpy feel. By the way I have not aged the pillow, apart from roughening up the backing fabric. I just can't bring myself to stain my stitching. Maybe another time.
