I have had a busy busy week but last night I managed to finish my Strawberry Fields Stitching Bag. Just needs a good press with the iron. I do think the accessories look out of proportion but they are exactly to the chart and as I won't be using them it isn't going to matter too much. The colour isn't really really true to life - in reality it is as beautiful as the name "Crushed Strawberry"
This little Quaker Pocket holds a six inch brass ruler.
My small collection of biscornu. These can be quite addictive can't they?
A Quaker Pin Cube - this was a freebie but I can't remember where from.
I stitched this according to instructions but it only reinforced my "I hate Aida" disease.
I made this some years ago and found the chart really hard to follow so was delighted to actually complete it. The two friends with whom I did the SAL didn't get theirs complete. Having a little more experience now I sometimes think I'd like to try it again and see if I could make a better job of it. I do like the M on the back
Now on to some other items - this Darning Pocket was a delight to stitch but I never managed to find a darning "mushroom" to keep in it. I remember my Great-grandmother had one but it was missing from her sewing box when I went looking. So the pocket is empty!
(By the way I have never seen a darning egg - we always had darning mushrooms. I had to look to Dr. Google to find these. The mushroom looks easier to hold don't you think)
This Drawn Thread Bell Pull has never been hung up. My Aunt gave me the kit and I did enjoy it but there is really no place in my house to hang this as all the walls are pale colour.
That's about all my news for the week that was. Tomorrow Little Brother is coming to stay for a couple of nights so I am off now to spend the evening in the kitchen preparing the meals for that.
Have a good evening everyone.
