It was quick and very enjoyable. I need to make five of these squares so I am doing the chickens in different colours because I am using up old threads rather than buying more.
The fabric is just a poly cotton I already had so it is not always as clear as linen for stitch placement but I was getting better as I went along and tried to pay attention instead of watching Antiques Roadshow (what a rock and roll lifestyle I lead!)
Other Stitching news from here... Big Sis has learnt to back stitch too and she made this little heart decoration which came first in the show on Saturday in the 6-11 year olds craft section. She was really pleased. It took her all of the summer holidays doing it bit by bit.
I finished a WIP from over 10 years ago. I started this map of our home county and just needed to put on the title and get it framed. I got it done and put it in the show but it wasn't placed but I now have a perfect in-laws Christmas present stashed away so I didn't mind.
There are some great stitching projects out there, go and take a look, especially Joys cushion, so clever. I have also learnt how to do fill in stitches from Chrissie which I didn't know how to do before.
Lots of Love Jo xxxx
