Using my mum's vintage Speedweve...

Each time I visit my mum, she gives me more and more sewing bits n bobs she has found in cupboards around the house. Last year she gave me her sewing box - which was a joy to clean  and to see it come to life again - and she also gave me her old Speedweve.

I remember playing with it as a child, pushing the links to and fro and not quite knowing what it was for.

A challenge from my local Embroiderers Guild gave me the opportunity to use it...... I made a 'patch' on linen from vintage yarn from my mum, and then embroidered an 'H' on it for Hertfordshire.... very therapeutic to do.
