Threadkeep

The third project to make the trip to England was the Folk Art Threadkeep. I did a lot of work on it during the first week of our trip. I finished the willow trees while watching Agatha Christie mysteries with my MIL. Back in September 2008, it looked like this.

Unfortunately, I put the year on when I started. Maybe I can sneak the finish date onto it somewhere.

That is really a pretty piece, Anna.

I like that design--don't think I've seen it before.

I love things with willow trees!

Wonderful!!!

Nic said...

That looks great.

One of my own finishes last year had the starting date on, I think it adds to the 'story' behind the piece, and with us documenting our stitching via our blogs, will give the historians something to discuss ;o)

I like the idea of two dates, too. It's a really lovely piece.

Lovely. I think you sneak in a finish year some place. This is why I usually leave the year to the very last...LOL.

Donna, I usually do too but it was in the middle!

Jenna said...

Very nice! How big is this one?

I don't know how you manage to do any stitching, let alone WIP - or, dare I say it? - UFO stitching when you're travelling. But you made great progress and this particular piece is just beautiful!

Michelle said...

Very pretty - and it looks like you made good progress on it!

It was a pleasure to discover your blog and see so many gorgeous embroideries.

I really like this piece, and you made great progress. Who designed it? I don't remember ever seeing it, and I'd like to see it finished.
