    Hi, I thought I would share an update of the embroidery one of our ladies called Helen is doing. She sews with a single strand of silk thread.

    The design is one of her own drawings which she transfers on to silk material, she then outlines with silk thread and fills in the design.

    so far there is approx 18 months work in this one picture. I believe she was a member of the English Embroiders Guild.

    Thanks from Helen, she will be very happy. She needs a bit of cheering on at the moment as she says she should have been finished by now.

    Oh my goodness. Please tell her that not only is she very talented but I would think there are LOTS of stitches in that piece and each stitch is perfect!! She shouldn't be beating herself up because it's not done yet. Holy cow! (And you can tell her I said so :roll: :roll: :lol: )
