Whispers from the Past Part 5


Welcome to part 5 of Whispers from the Past.

This week’s square is named for my Mother, Eileen.


Sign in / Sign up

Mum was the most amazingly creative lady, she used to be the County Arts Adviser for the Girl Guides, and has taught thousands of young people how to enjoy many different crafts, from Quilling, Pyrography, Tile Painting, Sewing, Knitting, the list goes on and on. She has some amazing pieces of work in her home, both Cross Stitch and Modern Applique.

Here are two of my favourites, the beautiful cross stitch and the lovely, fun Hedgehog, I actually claimed him as mine many years ago, but as I now live with Mum again, he is back in her house, he just makes me smile every time I look at him.

And here is Mum.

Mum always loved to work in groups, and bring people together.

So this square HAD to include some clusters, where we bring stitches together, and the front post stitches, made around the clusters, to me symbolise keeping groups together in a soft hug.

We will also be using another mesh design, based on the traditional Triangle Mesh stitch pattern.
This is a stitch I have used in the past for simple lacy scarves.
