Here's the progress so far on TIF for September. I made the lovely white heart on the right side using the yo-yo maker that Freda sent me last week...with an old earring for the centre. Pretty! Above that is an antique piece of lace highlighted with some beads. To the left of the yo yo is a heart shaped seam treatment which is actually a pattern for Chicken Scratch (found on CorgiPants blog), done using waste canvas. The lower right seam treatment is one I'm currently working on and it came from Annie's Crazy World blog. It's beautiful! The ABC's part of this post is to point you to Mary Corbet's blog at http://www.needlenthread.com where she is currently doing another series of letters for monograms. This time they are of Celtic origin and very pretty. Even if you aren't interested in letters, be sure to check out her blog because it is absolutely full of great information for embroiderers.
