About time too! I thought it was about time I got out some of those lovely small WIPS to see what I could get done on them in between everything else there is to do in a day.
Surprising how much you can get done with a 15 minutes here and there.
With the train commuting being more consistent and needing to be in the office, I thought I would dust off a little train project and use my time more wisely.
So given that I am getting into the spirit of Christmas I pulled out my Frosty Forest to have a little love.
Now you don’t get much more festive than a bit of snow. I am not a lover of stitching white (if I’m honest) but on this light grey linen it is not so bad.
Would you believe that after trying a number of times to produce a french knot in the past and failing miserably, I managed to stitch the eyes of the deers on a commute train first time round! Unbelievable – note to self ……don’t try so hard.
Then with an early night in bed one night and a bit of flosstube, I thought I would turn my hand to yet again something new and tackle the woven bars in my first Hanger piece – Beginners Hardanger part one by Loopylou Designs
All in all I think it came out ok for my very first attempt – I can definitely see me getting more into the hardanger and drawn thread pieces.
