This is a jug I made during the summer. It's been bisque fired now, but there's a crack in the handle, so I need to discuss it with the teacher before decorating it. I suspect we'll be taking the handle off completely.
It's based on a 15th century Spanish jug, from Manises, Valencia.

New book! New to me, that is. Secondhand from @kennysbookshop. The Bayeux Tapestrey by Wolfgang Grape.
First order of business is to look at the reproduction at the back.

I started this section yesterday afternoon. I'm happy with my progress.
The blue is indigo; the yellow, onion; and the orange, madder. The stem stitch ia cochineal.

I'm at an event in Sweden (Nordmark), and so is a box of hand-dyed wool from Finland (Aarnimetsä). I've bought these 6, and am enjoying using them.
I'm doing the stem stitch with cochineal.

Continuing Bayeux stitch practice. Not only am I out of the acrylic yarn I used in the class, but I can't find my solid-colour acrylic dk. I know I have some. Couldn't find solid wool dk either, but I think I am out of that. So I used cotton dk instead.
I managed to forget how to do stem stitch again, but photos I took during the class helped. I also forgot to do the blue stem-stitch line before most of the brown around it, but I think I got away with doing it after.

A fine cake by @ydavanboulogne. I had one at the end of Raglan. Delicious.

I had a spinning refresher after the embroidery class, and started a new.... single? It's purple! Souvenir fibre from Wales, hand-dyed by Carole Webb.
