Finished stole


Last year my friend David Hill asked me to make a stole for him for his entry into the Church. I had no idea how it should be made. After a lot of trial & a few errors I worked it out. Lined & interlined, all hand sewn, I was proud of it when it was finally done.This is my third one now and it does get easier. It's still a huge amount of work though; this one's taken me weeks. I took it to France with me and it was lovely to be making something with grape vines on it when I was surrounded by them. Let's hope she likes it.....

Thanks you guys. It's always a little nerve racking finishing something and suddenly realising you made it for someone else and maybe it's not what they thought they were getting.
