purposeless and adrift,
in their becoming,
their grace lost
when they ripen
to a purpose.
The picture above ( although a little blurred .. sorry) is of one tray cloth and it has this embroidery in the bottom right had corner and the rest is just the white linen that it stitched on. It is a personal favourite of mine and will go onto a journal soon I think. The fountain surrounded by flowers just speaks to me and I think it will be better to keep it as a whole to be seen and loved in all its glory .....
The cornflower pictured at the top of this page is the same, being that it is in the corner on its own
and no more flowers or stitchery and it really will look best on a journal.. It is a small tray cloth so it will have to go onto a small journal I think....
Ebay is another good source of finding these tray cloths although you have to put postage onto them mostly .. some are posted for free. If they are really unusual then I will buy if it is pretty but not stunning then I try not to as when they become too expensive they are no good for the journal coverings .. it makes them far to expensive.
Well that is it for today and I must away to my stitchery and get some urgent things finished today .. Then I may well have a little sort through some of my fabrics to get another work basket ready to start at some point in a week or so ...
Have a fabulous day and as always Happy Stitching! XX
