Stitching update : the Accursed Aubusson

Well, here I am again , with the latest installment of the Aubusson (design by Nicola Mascall, Anchor on 40 hpi silk gauze) .
I am, of course, just doing background. Turning the frame over or handling it at all strains my bad arm rather considerably.
Since I am also only able to work just over two hours every two days,going is VERRRY SLOOOWWWW. But I WILL get there , eventually! By the time I can fill in the flowers I am quite sure I will have the use of both my hands again :-)


  1. Slow makes beautiful! Can't wait to see it. :-)

  2. Wow, that is amazing progress with a poorly hand! It will be done before you know it!

  3. Wat een prachtig patroon. Je bent al aardig ver en kan me voorstellen dat je het af wilt zien.

    Groetjes, Roelie

  4. Hi Elly,
    You've done an amazing job! Even with 2 working hands I'm not able to get such a neat result....Looking forward to se the progress on this one.
    And hope you're recover soon so you can start on those flowers!

  5. Thank you all for your encouragement! Will be gnashing my teeth and get on with it, grin....
    Jerry I could not make what you can make if my life depended on it, you are extraordinarily talented!

  6. Your stitching is perfect as always, even with your bad arm.
