Progress

003

Slowly getting there and enjoying the journey. The lovely Cath helped me with some filling stitches and the french knot wisdom from embroider guru Kirsty  – how much do you love blog land – seriously. The stitches are wonky and inconsistent, but thankfully I have no perfectionist genes  and loving it just the same. There needs to be alternating stitchin and sewing nights for much need winter clothes or the kids will end up in swimmers and long socks all winter – it is that easy to get sucked in.

So beautiful. You're stitches are so neat and sweet. Know exactly what you're saying about being distracted from making winter clothes... if I don't pull my finger out my kids are going to be shivering too!

Wow, it looks fantastic. I couldn't let mine walk around in swimmers, they've got the dreaded sags.
