Referring to this blog post, here is a report on what I made on World Embroidery Day, 30 July 2013.
Firstly I worked on the 'woolly worm' for my second wrist warmer.
Secondly I made another stumpwork portrait. It is such a long time since I made one I had a really good time. Here she is, a lady all dressed up for autumn chill:
The lady who introduced me to this event, Ingalill, stitched in public together with her friends and it caused a lot of attention, many stopped by to have a look and the local newspaper was there to write an article.
Also in the town of Tranås, the local press came to report. Please, notice (in the picture) that in Sweden you are never far from a cup of coffee! Well, you know I have written at lenght about Swedish coffee culture, so that is not surprising!
Now, did you engage in embroidery on World Embroidery Day in some way and, if so, what did you do?
