In between cleaning, cooking, gardening and the 1001 pre-Christmas chores I have managed some more stitching on the Acorn Sampler Reticule.
The scissor fob stitching is finished
The scissor keeper stitching is finished
But there are still thousands more stitches to be done on the bag and then the Squirrel needlebook to stitch and fit to the base. The florentine should be fun as the middle row of diamonds are stitched to be stitched to look like acorns - what else:-)
I love the row of little acorns.
They were fun to stitch but perhaps I was over enthusiastic in stitching the date on the scissor keeper?? However there are still 11 days until the end of the year so perhaps a final sprint will get me over the line. Sure hope so.
I have just recently retired from work. I love to stitch - mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
