Dachshund project 

Standard

Look her new project looks like me! I do like to take her scarf & take it too my bed. 


She has a new project case & frame, it’s too big & I can not get my head on her lap, if it comes to it I will have to gnash those wooden structures, when she is not looking.  I do like the colours, it is the same colour as me. 

Canvas stitches

Standard

My next royal School of needlework module is canvas work, I have a few ideas, but before I start designing I thought I would try out some stitches, on some spare canvas. 

Left to right they are; Slanted Gobelin, Byzantine, scotch & condensed scotch. ( in the book I’m using)

I have many more to try out!!

SAL: July update

Standard

It’s been a long three weeks & apart from finishing my Jacobean piece for the royal school of needlework, I haven’t done much, ( that’s apart from school stuff, kids reports mainly, I do not understand why one kids report is ok, and another’s is not, what do I know, I teach physics!) , it did get me down in the end. It’s done now, & I will move on.

I managed to get a little stitching done after Claire’s reminder appeared. I only have one more to complete after this one.

SAL & Jacobean crewel work

Standard

Instead of working on my zodiac sampler along side my piece of work for the royal school of needlework, I have been concentrating on finishing my crewel work & attempting to get it into this times assessment phase or at least finished so I can start my next piece in September.  The bunny is almost finished, he needs an eye & a little definition on his nose.  I’m not happy  with yellow & purple leaf & the stitch the tutor suggested, it looks too bulky & fluffy for me so it’s coming out, & back to my original idea.
