This past week I have been trying to do a little stitching every evening on my project from last weekend. I have managed to finish two of the pocketfronts- yeey! The top one with the bird has "Needle parking" on the bottom where the wool squares are. Ann had made the text for us on transfer paper, so I could just iron it to my ribbon. Pretty cute I think :-)
This will be the front of the folder. Looking at the picture the stitched needles are a liitle light, but they show up a lot better in real life. I have to start working on the 1/2" hexagons for the next pocket now, but I really have to do a bit of quick sewing first.... I miss my sewingmachine doing all the handwork- but then I really enjoy the handsewing as well.... Guess I want the best of both worlds. I'll be back to show you the weekend sewing tomorrow! Dear husband and mr.17 has been in the Alps for a week for pre season training, so Mr. 15 and I have had a blast "Home alone" LOL. What can I say- the TV has been on twice I think, and lots of sewing/ cleaning and listening to music.
