I'm always excited when I hear from Chizue because I know that she's probably sending me photos of some of her beautiful needlework. Chizue, who is from Japan, stitches (and finishes) so many wonderful projects. Perhaps that is why her name may sound familiar to many of you.
A couple of months ago Chizue sent me photos of Mrs. Waddelow's Huswif. I must apologize for the delay in posting them--they got buried in a mass of emails. I'm sorry, Chizue.
Chizue stitched her huswif on 40-count Lambswool linen using Sister Scarlet Belle Soie thread from Crescent Colours--a very pretty color combination. Chizue told me that she is now making a basket with a paper craft band. I'm looking forward to seeing what she creates.
|What a pretty button Chizue chose to keep her huswif closed!|
|Such pretty fabrics Chizue chose for the inside of her huswif! |
(I also really like the fabric under her huswif.)
Thank you, Chizue, for sharing these photos of your beautiful work. You are truly an inspiration to many of us. I look forward to seeing your next needlework art.
