Gayle's page for September
Gayle, at last your creature has been captured and secured into an envelope and will be posted tomorrow! Sorry for the delay, I'm having a problem catching up as my husband keeps getting admitted into hospital!! All OK with him but we live a distance away and it all takes from embroidery time. I tried to find a picture online of the inspiration but can't; I found a lovely book which has designs from old Greek embroideries so you have a Greek cockerel from a bridal cushion of Ioannina, a town in northern Greece, which has been converted into cross stitch by a very talented lady, The book was produced by the Benaki museum, Athens - if ever you get to Athens, don't miss this place!! Hope you enjoy my interpretation of her interpretation!
