Another lockdown 3 project completed, January/February 2021. I used fabric from Makower’s, “Clara’s Garden”.
Stitched during the sea days during the 2020 Round the World cruise.The itinerary was changed drastically due to The Coronavirus pandemic so the scheduled visit to the Great Barrier Reef didn’t happen but, Jan, the craft tutor had already planned the activity. Each sea day she taught us new stitches to add to the embroidery.
A lovely 2020 Christmas present, the kit was an ideal activity for lockdown 3. I adapted the pattern a little, making two narrow straps rather than the one strap suggested in the instructions. I also inserted a pocket and embellished the pattern with a Suffolk Puff with a button for the centre.
Made in 2017 at Nikki Chandler’s Patchwork class, Great Wilbraham, Cambs.
I made this sampler at Nikki Chandler’s Patchwork class during 2018/2019. Two types of Flying Geese. One set are flying all over the place.
I forget when I started stitching this cushion cover but revisiting learning the technique of Sashiko whilst on the World Cruises along with finding things to do lockdown gave me the idea of finishing it off.
I stitched these coasters whilst on board P&O Arcadia during the second half of the world cruise. The itinerary was drastically changed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The craft group met daily during the 31 sea days from Fremantle, Australia, to Southampton.
Sashiko is a Japanese form of embroidery, originally used to darn worn garments.
