Yes, I know, I’m plodding along with my apron stitchery, but that’s no reason not to trace off and prepare a new stitchery project. I've decided I want to do this freebie from Stitch Doodles.
Because I wanted to stitch something with a Spring vibe, I changed the words, and traced the pattern onto a very pale green fabric. So far, I’ve made a small start. Sorry, but this didn't photograph terribly well, but I’m sure you get the idea.
I've made a start
I needed my helper to hold the skein of Perle 5 green thread while I plaited it, then it is easy to pull a length out as required - I’ll be using some green on the flower stems of this design. I mentioned to Robin how I used to plait my daughter Nicky’s long blond hair when she was a little girl. Those were the days.
He helped reluctantly, I think he was busy watching sport on TV
The other bit of slow sewing I intended to do today was to hand stitch the back of the binding down on a little boy’s donation quilt. That didn't happen, because it never got stitched on! Never mind, there’s always tomorrow – or the next day.
