Late I know but some months are like that, you just cant plan anything life just happens.
I had one left over finish from last post to share with you
|M Designs - Rose Mosaic Needleroll|
32 count Antique White, own colours, crystals and beads
finished with overdye silk ribbon
This week was my second date with the Back to Basics course at the Guild. I finished the pincushion and it has gone in for assessment Now the wait to see what I could have done better. The second piece is a Needle-book with flannel sheets between the covers to hold your needles. This is all hand stitched with a handmade cord around the outside and a loop closure. I have chosen some pretty lavender quilting fabric and a darker lavender for the cover. I will share a photo next time as I have to set up a sampler of stitches first. The front cover has my initial C stitched in 3 types of chain stitches which is a real stretch as I don't do
much (none) surface stitchery. The girls tell me it will grow on me but I have my doubts. I miss the holes in the fabric very much and the evenness of the counted stitches. I am a counted girl through and through but it's good to get out of your comfort zone occasionally, I think.........
Happy stitching, bye for now, Carol
