Mary Wigham Completed in Japan by Cat-san

Here is news of the first Mary Wigham we know of to be completed in Japan by Cat-san. The fabric she has chosen is Wichelt 32ct Lambswool and her thread is Weeks Dye Works, 2104, Deep Sea.

It is never easy to capture the quality of a large cloth, simply because one has to be so far back from it to get it all in the frame. For me the draped cloth in the peaceful woodland scene captures it all. Cat-san says she plans to back her sampler with indigo-dyed fabric - the thought of which knocks me side-ways - it will be stunning!

She has added one special touch which is dear to my heart - can you see from the little photo with her cat that she has added the bellflower motif (1 over 1)?
Now - what is in a name? Cat-san makes the little cat mascots herself which she sells as souvenirs.
