Pretty much sums up my progress on stitching Bloom down, but I have basted the second ring down this morning..
At this rate I have no chance of finishing before the guild meet on Sunday, but I can live with that.
One of the reasons it's taking so long is I keep getting distracted (and work - but the less said about that!) by little embroidery thoughts popping into my head. I had to act on one on Saturday night, in an attempt to keep me up past 8pm after the night shift. It turned out very cute...
Now while I am immersed in all things hand stitchery, this weeks lesson is all about English Paper piecing. I am off on a
jolly very serious work conference in Manchester for two days tomorrow, which I will paying attention too and not dreaming about fabric. So EPP is the perfect portable project for me, I hope the other train passengers won't mind the sweary words as I attempt it ;-)
Now for a blast from the past that inspired my post title.....
