The weather has been lovely for the beginning of November so I’ve been taking advantage of the weather and spending more time outside when possible as soon the weather will change and I’ll only be viewing the outside through the windows. Stitching has been done in between.
I added a border of chain stitches to the mini needle case and put some pins and needles inside. It fits perfectly in one compartment of the floss container. Now the container has all I need to work on my embroidery at home on or the go – a mini needle case, a needle minder, scissors, thread cutter, bits & pieces of threads, and a selection of coloured embroidery threads. I still haven’t decided if I will add stitching to the back cover. But I did cut out felt to make another one.
Page 4 of the stitch book is nearing completion. I had used iron on transfers for this page and wasn’t totally satisfied with how they ironed on.
But some creative stitching covered up the bits I wasn’t happy with. Just a few stitches to add to finish this page off. The top center stamped image was the one I was not happy with, it became the yellow flower.
This is almost finished page 4 and I’m much happier with the results. The lines that make the rectangles around the flowers were in removable ink so I ironed those away too.
Page 8 also saw some more finishing touches added. Just a couple more sections of this page before it is complete.
And with the cooler evenings I once again worked on the afghan kit, completing a multi coloured section and starting on the next grey section. I have a feeling I’ll be working on this afghan more next week as the temperatures are dropping and they even dared to mention wet snow in the forecast!
Now that I’ve got the post finished I realized I got more stitching done than I thought I had. I hope you made progress with you stitching or sewing this week.
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.
