Today my post isn't really about stitching. Why? Well I am in the process of reverse stitching my Blanket Stitch Flower which should have formed the pretty centre of my hardanger. It will....eventually.
But today is World Book Day and I requested this book from the library, telling the HD3QBEM that she would probably enjoy it as Simon had written an interesting review on it. (My daily dose of Simon's blog inevitably ends in requests at the local library and the exponential growth of the pile of books beside my bed!)
Now in the fading light of an extremely hot day I am going to trace my crewel design onto the linen and before I start stitching that, finish off the hardanger page for the NMMSAL.
In May I will be going to a weekend stitchers class and the mailman brought the needs list today. What a good excuse to go back to my LNS. I also need some more beads to complete this
So near and yet not quite finished.
