HELEN ADELAIDE LAMB


Helen Adelaide Lamb. Embroidered panel, c1909.


  Wonderful stitching and a beautiful design; Art Nouveau?, It reminds me  of Charles Rennie Mackintosh who was  also scottish and lived in the same period.

COASTER



I needed a big coaster for my mug tea or coffee next to my computer. It is  not a perfect round circle. Well actually it is a kind of try out or as we say in dutch: een broddellap.
I first dyed the fabric and than drew the design with  pencil onto the fabric and filled it in with different kind of stitches from the stitching bible.  I it is not the best piece I made but it does do the job.
I would say cheers.

50 YEARS



My sister Marga is having her birthday and she will be 50 years.  Instead of sending her a card I made her an apron.
So she can cook in style from now on.
 I am so sorry I am not  in Holland for this milestone, it would be so great with all the family
The good thing is, I will be flying next month to Holland.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
dear sister
