Here’s the end result, so far, of those embroideries.

I say so far as if you want to wait a while I will keep going and make a low Mass set!
I hesitate, as I don’t know what style of chasuble you’d like! Get in touch if you think you’re interested; I’d love to keep going but it’s a bit much for me to bite off if I don’t have a home for the set to go to…
I admit I was slightly tempted to fiddle about with this and change the leaves to shamrocks being that it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day. I restrained myself but if you want a shamrock pall, let me know! I think it would be awfully fun to embroider shamrocks…

No not me, although I am beginning to feel somewhat antiquated! I find old embroidery fascinating, don’t you?, and have noted that over time it acquires a slightly rumpled, wrinkly look to which I can relate…

Well, I’ve just finished making the chalice pall I talked about last time. After having a little think about it I completed the embroidery, made the teeny weeny altar linen for the back, stitched the whole thing together and then sewed on the lace edging.

Let’s have a look…
Little things… I’m working on a communion, or chalice pall at the moment. Not quite finished but I’ll share the progress.

I don’t go away very often, being a bit of a homebody. But when I go, I go!

Naturally I had planned a holiday at the beginning of March this year. Naturally I had to come back a bit earlier than planned due to unforeseen circumstance! Oh well, I’ll just have to go again… one day…
Yes that is a word. I made it up.

I have a horror of moths. They make me shudder. Once upon a time, long ago and far away, an extraordinarily annoying person frequently left screen doors open. In the evening. While lights were on inside. As you might well imagine hoards of moths flew in and I was not able to kill them all or frighten them with my squeals.
It’s all very well clearing the proverbial desk when some urgent thing or prompting comes along but you do have to get back to the desk! So after that flurry of embroidery, here is the second set of credence cloths I mentioned (I think!) a while back…

I have been feeling a bit like a production sewing facility behind the scenes here for the last little while. I finished the embroidery on the final chalice veil and then… well time to actually finish them properly, set the corners and sew the backing onto each one. A bit of chore but a necessary part of the job. Now they are all done, pressed and folded into their box and ready to go off on their travels. So let me explain…

Surely I am done! That’s four of these veils now; a green for Ordinary Time, violet for Lent and Advent (or is that the other way round?), red for Martyrs and the Holy Spirit and gold for Christmas & Easter and other feast days… right?

So, why did I embroider the cross (are you getting sick of it yet?) in blue?
