  1. Oh I have just discovered your website and haven’t moved from it for two hours – what a treausre trove! I am anxious to start on this embroidery – it looks achieveable – even for me! I have a marvellously exciting new project in mind that this will find right into! I am also working on a baby quilt that is made up of old christening gowns and bits of crocheting, tatting and embroidery women in my family have done over the centuries.
