Our tv has been playing up lately (something to do with digital signal reception), so without the distraction of getting sucked into active watching of something during the evenings, it's been great to make a few more stitches on my Halloween design...
I think you can guess what it's going to be!
There's actually something nice about having so few stitching projects on hand at the moment... with virtually all of my sewing & stitching stuff packed away in storage, it's handy to just pick up the same little project & keep working on it... rather less WTWO** confusion happening & more actual progress being made. I think I'm even beginning to like going between 2 or 3 things, instead of seeing a sea of UFOs & WIPs in disorganised piles!
I've been known to spend more time trying to decide & than actually doing it.
(Please tell me I'm not the only one!!)
**WTWO = What To Work On?
my Something To Share is really very lovely... in among the things that have made their way from my late MILs to our home, is a beautiful linen cloth... the stitching has been started & but obviously not completed... although my MIL was a beautiful stitcher, I'm not convinced she stitched this, it's entirely possible that her mother was working on it & my MIL kept it perhaps with intention of completing it herself but never did. Wish I knew the actual history!
It's great that the printed design is still so clear, I guess it washes off when the embroidery is done? I think it's about 55inches square.
What a beautiful cloth, the linen is heavy & still in excellent condition, with the original label still on it... I used to see this caddy in the corner of the spare room at MILs & always wondered what was in it & now I know - & will definitely be refining/adding to my hand stitching skills so I can finish it.
