These are my completed blocks, not sewn together yet.
And here is my embroidery that I started an age ago and have picked up again, as its great to sit outside in the sun and sew (yes, we have had a few sunny days recently)
|It needs an iron!
and a close up:
It is designed to use lots of different embroidery stiches, so it has been a learning curve, but one I am enjoying. There is still a lot of work to be done though!
I have been reading Susans blog : seeing all the things she has signed up for. What with going back to work in a few weeks and studying for my exams, I can't commit myself to swaps as I wouldn;t want to let anyone down, but she has tempted me to the Across the sea quilt along. I have told myself that I need to cut back on the fabric I buy and to use what I have and this project could work in that department. So I shall be signing up.
We have been to lakeside today - the girls 'needed' to visit Primark to get a few bits and bobs for our hols. Everywhere had sales on - Debenhams in particular were great, so we have all come home happy and spent half of what we thought we would: always a good day out. Normally I can;t stand shopping at Lakeside, but obviously the trick is to shop on a Tuesday, there was hardly anyone there!
