I have been reworking this embroidery this last week, though time for doing this work has been limited because there have been many orders to fill, thanks to the feature in Country Living. But here it is ... 24 cm x 25 cm ... silk, velvet, with rayon thread embellishment
All enquiries to info@nancynicholson.co.uk
I do love doing these again, but there have been many distractions these last couple of weeks, including my dear youngest boy Will who has been "helping" in the parched and desiccated garden. Having persuaded me to buy a lethal looking strimmer he is now occupied happily annihilating all in his path, but at least it stops him using the other garden tools for things they were not intended ... he needs topping up with food every half hour too, but it is good to hear the thrashing outside as I really have no time at the moment to compete with the growth out there. But love it too all ram shackled.

The next post will feature the newest Radial AND an exciting new venture which has also distracted me somewhat this week ... but wait and see.

    1. Hi Trudy, thank you so much, I also had a lovely time wandering around your blog which is lovely ... and I am ashamed to have only just noticed your piece about the "Bird" kit! Did you finish it? At that time I was having my big op! But hope the kits are doing well out with you ... some more soon to be produced! xxx
