Well, today has been the most perfect stitching day … almost like a winter’s day it’s been bucketing down so hard you can hardly see out the windows – and the thunder has been rolling for a while … what better way than to stay indoors curled up with your stitching 🙂
I started my ‘finishing’ rotation slot this evening with finally putting together two things that have been sitting unfinished for many many years – first of all my “Ancient Thistle Needlecase” by Textile Heritage Collection – and secondly my “Pins and Needles” scissor keeper by Forget-Me-nots In Stitches … both stitched way back in 1999 (gulp!!). But they’ve both been given a new lease of life and can now become functional items in my needlework basket – yippee!!! I actually have a silk cord made up from the original threads, which I made a the same time as stitching the scissor fob, but I couldn’t lay my hands on it – so I opted to use a variegated perle cotton by Anchor and a satin ribbon instead … doesn’t look too bad 🙂
Rightio, what else can I do tomorrow? I have a list of items to choose from … the question is, which one will win out?
