PASHMINAS




As the season is rapidly changing and cooling I thought I would show you one of my lovely warm pashminas I have been working on. Oh how I wish I had the time for luxurious hand embroidery, but I don't, so I decided to do some machine embroidery and this is one of the ends with Jacobean inspired, embroidered flowers and a couple of dragon flies and lady beetle designs by Rowena Charlton. I have another photo of the centre back design, which features a butterfly. I am very happy with the result. These designs were sewn directly on to the lovely soft pashmina which I bought through eBay. They are 4ply pashminas, which are heaps thicker than the normal 2ply ones, and come in a wide range of colours. I will now have to find a special place to wear it!
