And I thought that not posting for 2 months was bad when I posted last time! With coursework, kids activities and all sorts of other things stopping me from stitching I haven't blogged because I'm not sure that anyone else wants to know what else I am up to!
I have been trying to make at least 15 minutes a day to get a bit of stitching done. I have made a ring cushion for my mum's friend. She got married on 26th July. This was the first time I have done Hardanger on such a scale and the thought of actually cutting the threads had me shaking every time I got the scissors near it! The photos have come out really dark but it is a really beautiful design from Col's Creations. The bride and groom both loved it apparently!
I also made a wall hanging for Rachael's teacher as she was leaving primary school and he has been a fantastic teacher. He is a huge Nottingham Forest fan so I got a chart of their badge and used that as well as personalising it for him.
Mr Whittle seemed to be pleased with it too according to Rachael.
I am absolutely determined to finish something biggish this year. I am concentrating on Bothy Threads Cut Thru Garden Shed. The chart is over 9 pages and so far I have done 5 pages of actual stitching. There is masses and masses of back stitch which I will have to do after the stitching is finished. I will post a progress picture after tonight' stitching and then try to do an update once a week.
