Gothic sun window nearly stitched…

Well, if you can rely on me for one thing, it’s that I’ll be slower than planned getting something finished. So you won’t be surprised that the Gothic Window is still not completed, but it’s really very close and the light was so good today, I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures.

There’s just a bit more of the sun to stitch.

As you can see I’ve gone totally overboard with the metallics and shiny threads.

I just couldn’t help myself.

I’d like to say I’ve managed to purge myself of the shiny obsession,

but it would be a lie. In fact I went out last week and bought a couple of new twinkly threads. I’m just a sucker for anything glitzy.

Quite by chance, I caught a TV programme on iPlayer all about the stained glass east window at York Minster in the week. I’ll always be one of those people who can just stand and stare at these amazing pieces of art – I suppose after 600 years or more, they still work their magic on me.

Happy stitching.

  1. Yay for shiny! I always feel guilty when those sparkly threads call out to me in the needlework shop – I’ll feel less so now. Your window is looking wonderful, really rich and vibrant

    1. I keep thinking I should do something in beige to balance out the shiny fetish, but then those twinkly bits just wink at me, and it’s back to the metallics all over again.

It would be lovely to hear your thoughts...
