Jacqui Armitage with goldwork insects - stitch club Saturday 16th June 2018

We had a happy day with hand stitching. Having already created a beautiful beetle before hand, Jacqui finished off an exquisite ladybird, Judith created the framework of her dragonfly and I struggled with wings - hand sewn wings were beyond me, so once home I machined them, and made the body from friendly plastic. (I had done some homework on Friday with the flowers).
