    Again a nice piece of work, try to take photos of your work, its nice to look back on and it helps remind you of what you have done.

    I don't know if you looked at my FB page but near the bottom of the page are pictures of the denim jackets I embroidered, even then in the 1970's I felt it was important to take pictures and am so glad I did even if not very good quality.
    Just so you can see my work, my FB page https://www.facebook.com/iconstudiossouthampton/

    Another lovely piece of work Andy.
    Shame you haven't photographed everything in the past, but hopefully you will now - because you've got some very interested fellow crafters (and one nosey so and so in me!) who delight in seeing the creativity and skill of others.

    Hello Mandy and thank you for the kind words. Well i rarely make anything from start to finish in one go, but in actual hours I suppose if i had to just get on with it probably abot an hour to an hour and a half. This particular piece is not lined so it was fairly simple to construct. Of course after applying dye it needs to be left to dry too. The design is also a simple line drawing with no complex shading so that was pretty quick too. Now if we are going to include coffee breaks then the time increases dramatically.

    LOL! Coffee breaks are an essential part of creativity
