A few weeks ago another package arrived from Under The Mulberry Tree in Australia - the next 2 stitchery designs for United Stitches, US009 and US010, by Rosalie Quinlan Designs. These designs are already screen printed onto linen (saves having to trace the designs on by hand!) which means all I had to do was fuse a piece of weaveline to the back of the linen, put it in my wooden hoop and I was ready to make a start with the hand embroidery...
...these are stitched very simply with Cosmo embroidery threads, using back stitch, chain stitch and satin stitch. I've spent a few peaceful evenings getting these completed. And I've had an email from UTMT to let me know the next 2 designs are on their way over from Oz!
