2 When we were in America about 30 years ago, I bought some fabric to make into Trapunto panels. I still haven’t used them! However, the technique has stayed with me and I decided to use it on the baby blanket that I am making. I’ve been working on it all day, using stem stitch and chain stitch so that each segment of The Very Hungry Caterpillar is now padded and raised and looks brilliant! I am really pleased with it.

3 Embroidering all day called for a very simple supper! Chicken risotto with leeks and mushrooms with a spinach salad with balsamic dressing – delicious!
