It has been a tiring few weeks, preparing for and attending my last two craft fairs of the year, so I am glad to be back working on my boro keepsake quilt – Eve’s Garden.
I have embroidered lazy daisy into the little squares where the lines of running stitch intersect … the obsession with french knots also seems to be continuing. I am trying to keep the palette of stitches fairly restricted, using them to bring order to the underlying random interweaving of the fabric.
Still a long way to go, but progress is being made. I am hoping to finish it by Christmas, but it may take a while longer … as a piece of work I find it quite draining, so I need to break away from it every now and then to work on something more simple and smaller in scale. We shall see how those distractions work out in the next few weeks.
