It has been a week of dabbling … some rock painting, some crochet, some embroidery, and some sewing.
Page 3 had a small piece of cross stitch appliquéd onto two fabric hearts and bordered with chain stitch. Various other stitches were practiced and a couple of small flower bunches added to the corners. I’m not sure if the page is finished yet.
Page 6 was a practice page for some TAST stitches(Take a Stitch Tuesday) from the Pintangle site. I’ve been slowly working on this page for awhile now. Glad to have it completed.
I started work on a small cross body bag, just the right size to carry the phone and a couple of other things.
This is a creation as I go along, and it has seen a few changes already, and I’ve only just started. More about it soon as it progresses a bit more.
Rock painting also took part this past week. I haven’t really painted any rocks for absolutely ages. Slow stitching of a different sort.
I saw an idea that gave me a bit of inspiration and just had to try it out. It was some rocks someone had done and used masking tape on them to get straight lines. Now I have three quilt rocks to leave in various places.
The stack of crocheted dish cloths got a bit bigger this week. An ongoing project with this pattern of my creating.
- 4.5 cm hook
- 27 sc for foundation chain
- hdc in 3rd stitch from end, hdc across
- start each new row with 2 sc (first hdc), then hdc across
- repeat till cloth is square
- sc around all edges to give a nice finish
I love crafting when there isn’t a timeline involved, just do a bit, work on something else, get ideas, unravel, work a bit more. Total enjoyment.
Slow and steady is the best way to go.
I get lots of inspiration from other stitchers at Slow Sunday Stitching and appreciate all the visits and comments from there. Visit them and gather some inspiration for yourself.
