Like many of us I have a passion to do many things embroidery/textile wise and have had a go at most things.But there is one thing I really would love to do - and that is make a jacket based on the 17th century Margaret Layton Jacket in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. For years I have mulled over the idea and not taken the plunge yet. Perhaps one day I will get started !!! I have started a sketchbook so at least thats something.
What is your ultimate goal in embroidery/ textiles? What is it you dream about doing?
I'd like to see your peacock's tail like cloak.Please be courageous and start working on that soon..

What an inspiring discussion! I would love to make a patchwork and embroidered cloak like a peacock's tail. I have the sketches. I have some of the silk. I just have to pluck up the courage and do it!
Thanks for the encouragement, Anita. I'll start work on it this winter (which is here in a month!).
