England is conquered.

I feel like a conqueror!   'England' in one thread of floss over one thread of linen has been quite a mission but I am pleased with the result.   Only Ireland, Scotland and Wales to go but I think a short rest is in order.
The hardanger tassel turned out well too.   This time I did not make any mistakes in the cutting and remembered to put a bead in the base to hold the twisted cord.   Yes, I think this one could be ranked as successful.
Tonight I am going to lace my crewel work piece and complete the June page of the  NMMSAL. Well, hopefully.   I have a nasty head cold and I'm anxious not to pass it on to the HD3QBEM so will take myself off to bed early and try that old wives cure of a lemon and honey drink.
So short and sweet tonight.   I hope you don't catch my cold.

  4. I'm very impressed by your over one stitching, you have so much patience. Your hardanger tassel is just lovely too. I hope your cold goes away quickly and that you don't pass it onto your mum.

  8. England turned out fantastic! I love the detail of over one stitching, but don't love doing it. Your tassel is gorgeous! One of these days I hope to try my hand at one.
