Everyone worked really hard to get as much done as possible in the last couple of workshops.

Once the embroidery is finished the panels will be pressed and backed with calico.

The birds now have legs!

The botanical drawings of Jaywick flowers on the first panel have been painstakingly stitched in stem stitch.

Our soldier now has a dashing moustache!

The second panel now has the architectural diagrams showing the subsidence in Tower C when it was first built.

Some simple stitches added detail to the child riding a donkey

Operations Sealion, the planned Nazi invasion of Britain in World War 2, is depicted in stitch.

Churchill’s famous quote embellishes the fourth panel, showing the significance of  Jaywick and the Martello Tower in protecting the country.

The map showing Jaywick in the 1960’s took a long time to sew but it interesting to have a record of the changes and additions to the area.

Beautifully embroidered ‘Jaywick Sands’ emblazon the sea wall on the final panel in the series.
