Still smocking!

I've been doing a bit of smocking on gingham, [I have loads left from the book...] it's so easy to work with as the one inch grids are already there! I'm not giving too much away about the little pin cushion as that's a whole new e book in the making, but the bows design below I think is one of the most striking patterns. It takes the longest to stitch and will look stunning with a little pearl in the centre of each bow.

By the way, if any of you have bought Modern Smocking, I'd really appreciate a review on Amazon if you could spare the time!

  1. Wow, the box pattern is really neat~ What kind of smocking did you use? Or where would it be in the book?
