... or Two ...

This is another stop/start travelling page made for the swap on the Embroiderer’s Guild forum.

I began this one at a Flower Pounding workshop with Linda Rudkin.

The component parts were made at the workshop but it waited some time to be assembled into a finished design.

Although I had attached the individual flowers with beads, I felt that it was lacking embroidery so added the word Hydrangea in stem stitch.

I think that this is one of the prettiest Travelling Pages I have made thus far.

Happy Stitching
