I had to rescue this beautiful stitching from the CS today.
It measures 21 inches square and is only partially done. The stitching is extremely neat and a lot of work has gone into it already.
With it came this piece of stitching which measures 32 inches by 24 inches and, again, is partially complete.
There is a variety of stitches - herring bone, chain ...
and a wonderful whip stitch has been started around the edge.
Unfortunately there are no silks with the pieces apart from the ones that were last in use.
Even though I can embroider, I am not as competent at the art as this lady was. I very much doubt that I will finish these - they need someone who is skilled who has a bank of silks that would match the ones already on the cloths. I am willing to post these to anyone who will be kind enough to complete these and give them a new home. (UK only)
If you are the person I'm seeking please leave a comment below. If more than one person wants these I'll put names into a hat. I really hope someone can complete these as so much work has gone into them already.
