For my Work In Progress Wednesday report this week I have something totally different.The Kafferepet quilt is tucked away until autumn when I will continue work on the borders.
Instead I have started another project.
Last year in Sweden I visited several 'sloyd' exhibitions. At one of the events I was given a coupon that offered me a discount at the Svensk Hemslöjd shop. I selected this book. It is all about Swedish wool embroidery.
From the many projects I decided to try my hand at making a pair of wrist warmers. This is what some of the ones at the Sloyd exhibition looked like.
I first drew some floral pattern in what I think looks a bit folksy, one design for one wrist and a different for the other wrist.
I then started stitching. So far I have used Stem, Chain, Straight and Berry Stitches.
Oh, how difficult it is to photograph black cashmere!
So this is my HWIPW - Holiday Work In Progress Wednesday! More progress next week I hope.
