Catching up with R

Monogrammed hanky with extra embroidery in progress

Looking for a distraction, and needing to stitch, I delved into the bag of materials and samples from John Parkes’ July workshop (see this link and scroll to the bottom).  I had left the top R pinned, without stitching, as the fine brass pins looked beautiful with the transparent fabrics.  But now I’m going to stitch, both around the reverse appliqué and into the whole cloth.

The hanky was a gift, the red fabric is thick wool cloth salvaged from my old dressing gown and there is also part of a favourite linen shirt and a fraying silk scarf.  The colour and thickness of the red wool argues with the other materials, which feels appropriate right now.
