Another of my new pieces ,a pendant. This one was inspired by the colour of one of my roses , the David Austin rose 'Munstead Wood'. It is such a dark red and smells so good , I have been making rose water all week for my hair ! The pendant is all done in french knots on green silk linen. There is another version too which looks like the centre of an opium poppy( in the same colour) just click on the etsy link or go to
The Glass Pingle at etsy from here.

A new venture..... I like embroidered covers for things and after making covers for everything in my handbag it occurred to me that other people might too !! The first fruits are i-phone covers and memory stick covers. Using my stash of hand dyed threads I have worked them in my favourite stitches. For the covers themselves I have used some lovely pieces of linen and silk linen and they are all lined in Liberty print cottons with useful hanging loops.

This is just a small project to see where I could push the needlelace this time ! It is very small and I worked it in some lovely silk from Pearsalls. As for technique , a basic single brussels stitch base which I then worked into with more buttonholing , picots and french knots. I had no plan as I went, I just wanted an organic texture and something which could possibly be worn.
