Just realised I never posted my finished ‘year-long’ project for last year. Each square represents a week, and I used a combination of techniques. Goldwork, Hardanger, blackwork, stumpwork, needlelace, drawn thread work, beadwork, embellished photography, Bargello, Assisi work, cross-stitch…. etc etc. Mostly my designs, with a couple of motifs from cross-stitch books.

Butterfly prayer shawl

Another prayer shawl made for a friend of mine. Double-knitting wool, size 5mm needles. It reminds me of a butterfly, for some reason.

 

I started this in February, but what with a new house and a new job, life suddenly got busy 🙂
