'Yours Faithfully'

A few photo's to share with you from yesterday's workshop at theGALLERY in Bishop's Castle: 'Yours Faithfully; Writing in Stitch'. 
Using a variety of traditional embroidery stitches, quotes and phrases were sewn onto napkins and handkerchiefs in a style reminiscent of those morality samplers which were popular with the Victorians. The use of the embroidery hoops to stabilise the fabric certainly added to the 'Victorian ladies wot sew' ambience of such an exercise! 
A lovely day of gentle stitching...
