However, for better for worse the stitching is now done. But I am stuck. In all my stash of cotton fabrics there is none that is suitable as the backing for this. I need to buttonhole separately around both the front piece and the back piece thus attaching a backing to each and then buttonhole the buttonhole stitch to attach the two pieces together. Got that?? So I am stuck - like Piglet in the hole. I cannot go forward and I cannot go back. I wait, stuck until I can get to the store and hopefully find a suitable fabric.
In despair I looked in my "to complete this year" box which sits on the shelf of the coffee table.
No, I don't want to do another animal on the Growth Chart.
No, I don't want to do another bookmark.
No, I don't want to start another project.
Okay, the Heirloom Nativity Sampler it is. And I fished that out and then decided that I wasn't even going to do that this evening. I am too tired. A busy day at work and then a highly demanding session with the trainer at the gym means I am tired and I want a rest. So it's off to bath and bed. Goodnight everybody.
