Elizabethan Style Embroidery
















Hi All - Here's a couple of pics of a piece of Elizabethan Style embroidery which I did several years ago (it was my first time) I have since designed and made a heart with Australian wildflowers rather than the traditional English ones and intend on putting a book together at some point (I still have 9 ISB numbers sitting over in Melbourne!). It won't be for a whil as I also want to do a book on my Wire Bobbin lace pieces and also a book o nmy Venetian Gros Point needlelace and a 2nd book of Cordonnicot Needlelace patterns ..... My "backburner" is seriously over loaded haha! I have been working on my Neferititi Needlelace the last few days and it is coming along well ..... I have been taking photo's of it at various stages and will post them on here when it's finished. I have decided that rather than incorporate it into the "Egypt" themed embroidery I had originally intended it for I will now perhaps make it into a neck purse so that it won't spend it's life in a drawer or in a pic frame!... My Australian Lace Magazine arrived today, at last, and the form for this years week long conference has been mailed ... finger's crossed that I get into the workshop that I want! (A needlelace one rather than a bobbin lace ... much easier to transport the gear for that on an airplane! - I learned that 12 years ago haha!!!)

Your work is beautiful, I love the lace work. Thanks for you kind comments on my blog, I'm still a 'beginner' only been embroidering for about 8 years! There are so many techniques I want to try.
