Stomacher

I have got the lutradur stomacher completed and am quite pleased with it.  I am working on the embroidered one but am having difficulties with getting the direction of the stitching right on the leaves.  The flower has worked out fine.

Thanks

Thanks to Annie and Diane for some brilliant workshops. I am really enjoying them. I did a picture of Elizabeth I (among other things) which I am so pleased with - you will see it in our exhibition.

Talk by Mary Bentham

Mary ( in the red jumper ) has just retired from Bradford museums and we were very lucky to be able to share the benefit of her knowledge on Tudor costume and textiles.
