Good morning dear Crafty Friends. As you may remember last time I was having difficulties and could not post a photo of my work. I did manage it a few days later and at that time I did a follow up post but I know many of you would have not got that so here again was last times progress.
I had just finished the fish pond. I have finished this block and now also finished the small following block which ended with the herringbone stitch. The hearts I am stitching now are the first row of the following block, although it is attached to the last block so does not feel like I am on to a new one.
I am not much of a machinist and my sewing machine cost £20 from Aldi a good while back but I have been persevering and have made hubby and I another mask each (we only had one each which my daughter had got for us, but its only in the last week that we have really been out of the house and I now feel that we are going to need maybe half a dozen each. I really don’t want to be standing washing them out every night so this sounds like a sensible amount to me. Maybe some of you will tell me differently. Anyway I digress – without the time its taken to make those two whole masks I think the next block would have been finished too. Still I feel like I have had a productive three weeks and have made a fair bit of progress so all in all i am pleased how things have gone on the Baby Garden.
Very different from other SALs each person is stitching there own cross stitch or embroidery design and the group is there to supply support and encouragement, especially to those struggling with large projects. We are all around the world so are as different as our stiching. Do visit and see what others are up to but remember there will be time differences.
