I've had embroidery requests from two customers - the more interesting one has been from Chertsey Museum. They are changing the display on the fashion room and from September will have exhibits from five decades: from the 1960s to the 2000s. As well as clothing and accessories they will have a perfume representing each decade. The perfumes will be sprayed daily onto silk - could I embroider the perfume name, designers and decades (see post dated 16th August).
The silks have now been done and will be delivered tomorrow:
Meanwhile the village preschool dropped off a few items of uniform...
The boxes in the top photo have been done, but there is plenty more to keep me busy for the next week or so!
Added to the embroidery the new curate (trainee vicar) at church asked me to mend a surplice,
And husband picked blackberries and apples - so it would have been rude not to make a crumble!!
Hope you are enjoying the summer!
