Embroiderers Guild starts again this month and I really wanted my new workbasket to take, so foot to the pedal and voila!
The Woodland Delights piece was made into a little zipped purse. I am definitely not totally happy with that one and while I will be using it (container for my spectacle cleaner and cloth when I travel) I plan on stitching it again in two separate pieces and trying again.
Tonight I will stitch these three pieces together and construct the thimblepod. Looks like I need to remove the tacking thread first?!
Then and only then, will I allow myself to start a new piece. Noddy is to be my Guild project for the year which is a cunning way of allowing myself the pleasure of choosing another piece from my stash for my "at-home" stitching. So the hardanger books are coming out of the cupboard - oh yeah!
