May colors

I haven't posted for some time, because of a crafty deadline :-) I had to finish some medieval embroidery because the reenactment festival season is starting again. I finished a smocked apron for my daughter, and a linen embroidered cap for myself. This is an image of me wearing my medieval outfit :-)

Pin board: Craft inspiration April 2011

Someone asked me if I didn't miss working on my blanket, after a year of crocheting. The answer is YES. I haven't decided what to do next... I'm now working on a historical smock embroidery project (I'll show you when it's finished). Now that the weather is so good, I don't really feel like knitting.. I was thinking about making a memory quilt with some of my daughter's shirts, but I've never done quilting, so that takes some research...

So that's why there are so many examples of smocking and quilting in this board :-)
