Slow progress

Little by little the embroidered panel for my bag is growing.   If it weren't for the interminable reverse stitching I would be well finished.   But so far so good and there is no real hurry for this.
So wrinkles and all here's a photo.   There will be three "panels" and I'm debating whether to do a narrow band of drawn thread (woven edge) down each side,
Evenings have been full of chores lately.   The DBEM still uses lawn handkerchiefs.   No tissues for her :-(   And here's the haul from the recent pile of ironing. 
Little Brother and his wife are coming this weekend and I am trying to have everything tidy and organised - the menu is planned, the housework is done and all that remains is a quick flick of the duster and a trip round the house with the Hoover.   I'm tired just thinking about it.   So goodnight to all.

  1. I'm with DBEM - I like a "proper" hankie. But I iron my own.

  3. Oh the hankies Margaret, they take me back in time to when I was a little girl and we always had an embroidered hankie in our pocket.

  4. Such a pretty piece, it looks so delicate and tedious. Love the fabric colors you've shown. Have an awesome visit.

  5. I loved The Day of the Triffids and I've never understood why it didn't achieve more acclaim.
    Beautiful stitching and enjoy the family visit!

  8. Your stitching is lovely!
    I never really liked using fabric handkerchiefs, but my grandma does...the ones she's been using and washing for years are so heavenly soft by now!
