Thank you for the kind words regarding the Shepherd’s Bush finishes. I worked on the Châtelaine Designs Stitching Leporello (CJC #5) over the weekend, and have been picking away at it through the week.
No sepia tone was added to these pictures; Seattle winters are really dark! These photos were taken before noon on a day when the sun is shining. Hopefully by the time I finish the Leporello the days will be brighter and you can see this pretty project in all its colorful, sparkly glory.
I’m working on the small parts of the Leporello first. The flowers are some of the pieces which connect the booklet together, and the arch is part of the needle keep page. Each design is exquisite and full of detail; any one would be a lovely standalone small. I especially like this arch, from the variegated vine to the Gothic initials stitched over one. Wouldn’t it make a pretty pinkeep?
