I've been feeling very Autumnal of late.
This fox keep- sake-keep-safe- keeper has taken me days to make (I think it's because I enjoyed making him and kept adding more and more hand stitching methinks!)
There's a little linen pocket inside for all your treasured letters and photographs.
The thing is, does seeing all the workings on the back annoy you?
I love seeing all the stitchings on the back, it's like the history of the piece, its finger print.
I don't want to put in a lining, I love the feel of the old linen anti- Macassar.
Do you like the back of embroidery?
