Despite my promise to use only needles with no eyes this week and finish the small jacket for Tabitha, I found the chart for this pear here
I could not withstand the temptation so last night I found a needle with an eye, my DMC floss and a suitable scrap of linen from stash and this is progress so far.
While the frenzy took me I also sorted out floss and fabric for a Cricket Collection Christmas Alphabet .... and made a small start.
Only one day left of my working week and on Saturday there is the treat of an Embroiderers Day at a nearby Guild. It is always fun to go to those and to see what others are stitching. This month I have activities written on my calendar for every Saturday of the month including a one day workshop on Teneriffe Lace on the 27th. Are you like me and suffer from acute "plan-ahead-itis"? My Embroiderers' Guild newsletter only arrived in the post today and already I have mentally booked accommodation and participation at a distant Embroiderers Day in May next year!! Whoa - that may be one step too far Margaret as you have the HD3QEM to consider too. Still dreams are free aren't they.
And on that note of wisdom, goodnight to all.
