2019 and Final Stages

January 2019

In mid January 2019 Chris C, Judy J and Margaret came to Ros’ house in Corsham.  Now that the individual plants have been stitched on organza they have been attached to the background of this Prospect hanging.  We were continuing the very time consuming task of blending the plants into each other so you don’t see where one plant ends and the other begins.  Photo shows Chris C free machining onto water soluble paper – how many pairs of glasses?

We started at 10.00 and after a snack lunch we continued until 3.00.  Great day stitching, chatting and contributing towards this amazing project.  Detail from two of the panels

Corsham photoshoot

It was arranged for me (Ros) to meet Margaret Heath and Helen Owen from the Prospect Hospice on 10 January for me to take some photos of the framed Savernake Embroidery.  No, they were not in the Right Angle Framing Shop where I had expected to find them but opposite as they had taken over John Parker’s shop for the professional photographer to take photos!  What a great idea of Steve Hible’s (owner of Right Angle Framing) as there was lots of light and a loverly white wall on which to hang the three framed embroideries.
