My Auntie has a die cutting machine and she had borrowed an Owl die off my other Auntie and was taking it back to Yorkshire so I went round with my scraps bag and cut out 14 Owls! I wanted to remind myself of the stitches I knew.
A very uneven looking blanket stitch, a wonky back stitch and two knobbly French knots.
I needed a little project to put into our local craft and horticultural show on Saturday in the embroidery class (let's hope there are few entries!) So I had a little practise.
My chosen project is this hen from Cath Kidston's book 'Patch'. I thought it looked easy and I could concentrate on preparation techniques rather than lots of stitches.
New crocheters tonight so wish me luck! Jo x
