Last night I was watching Downton Abbey again and needed to find something I could do that didn't require great concentration. I need to get the Barbara Kershaw "Liesel" pillow case project done by August for a correspondence course I'm taking with the Embroidery Guild of America (EGA), so it's important to do a little whenever I can. Here is a link to a picture of the final project in the Schwalm technique that I'm just learning in this project: http://chainstitchers-ega.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/gcc_liesel_schwalm.jpg
I am also signed up to do this sampler, also designed by Barbara Kershaw: http://www.berlinembroidery.com/schwalmwhiteworkembroidery.htm
I am not on a time schedule for this one, so it will have to wait!
Here's my photo of my basting stitches so far:
