Issue 80 of Stitch That is on its way…..
As I am updating my Journal pages, I am having difficulty concentrating on the work in hand. As some of you will have seen from Twitter, Bill and I are leaving for India on Monday morning. He surprised me with this as part of my 60th Birthday celebration and I am so excited……. I have ironed all my linen clothes, sorted stitching for the plane and bought a new camera so I will have loads of pictures to show you when I get back.
We are away for 10 days but the office will be manned during my holiday and so feel free to call. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
I thought you would like a preview of some of the projects in Stitch That which is winging its way towards you as I write (Stitch That is our Members magazine posted five times a year – go to Join Us) As promised, there is a skein of Madeira stranded cotton in your parcel as well as your magazine and an advance order form for my new book which will be published in June.
Papal Basilica of St Fancis of Assisi
I have included an Assisi project inspired by the city of the same name where this type of counted embroidery is thought to originate. Bill and I visited the walled, hill-top city whilst on holiday with our son and his wife where we saw Assisi embroidery in use in local homes as well as for sale to tourists.
I thought it was time to indulge ourselves in a little pure cross stitch and so I have included two flower studies this time as well as a a pretty floral idea for our linen tote bags.
