A little bit of stitching


I have to confess, we are watching the Olympic games with no commercials and enjoying it. The coverage is biased towards Team GB and we often have to look at SMH online to find out how the Aussies are going. Last night was particularly thrilling for Team GB and it was exciting watching them win three gold medals in an hour. We still cheer very loudly for the Aussies though and watched our gold medal being won by the swimming team earlier this week.

This means that I am getting some sewing done. I bought a kit at the Craft Fair in Sydney last year and for six months I received a package in the mail each month containing the instructions and bits I needed to make each panel. I have been saving them to do on this trip. This week I finished the first panel. I am not good at embroidery, and have had to draw the designs onto the fabric myself as I don’t have a lightbox to help with tracing. I have almost finished the second panel. I chose this design as I loved the soft muted colours and I thought I would learn different techniques constructing the different squares.

    I’m impressed! It looks lovely. Is it still a work in progress?

      Dear Glenda, sorry not to reply to this comment earlier – not good internet connection. Lovely to hear from you – would love to say that I am madly working on it, but it would be a lie – I find that by night I am pooped – so much exploring. Anyway, it will get finished one day. xoxo
