No.3 Fowlers Yard, Back Silver Street, Durham City . . .

10 years in my studio, come rain, come shine, 
come snow, come heavy rain fall!

Silk Shaded 'T'

tapestry shading = vertical shading
I worked this small letter 'T' (about 1½ inches square) as part of a bigger sampler for a friends retirement present where other embroiderers participated.

I worked it whilst away from home as it was a small enough project for me to carry around.

It was one of the quickest things I have worked of late.  Most things I do tend to take their time to complete, so it was nice to work this quick little project whilst on the move!
