You're right Margaret, after completing the Long Dog's 18th Century Sampler I felt quite aimless ;) Withdrawal symptoms you say? :D
I sewed a hair band for my sis over the weekend. She chose the fabric and it's now finished. I attached a piece of rick rack to add interest to the band. It's really really easy to do. This is where you can get the wonderful tutorial.
I finished a smallish piece this weekend. It's such a simple stitch and I intend to finish it into a tea cosy. I might add 2 strips of tatted lace, just to jazz it up a bit :) You can get this freebie at Tanya's site The Sampler Girl. Tanya's having a contest too on this pattern :)
I've started on My Sweet Rose by John William Waterhouse. Upon much consultation with Hazel, I've decided to stitch her on 16ct aida. Thanks so much Hazel. This will be a looong project. I did a rough estimation, if I stitched one box a week (100 stitches), I'll finish the piece in 9 years!! LOL!! This is the first 100 stitches :p
Plans for this week will include stitching the PS block, completing the block if I can. I think I'll change TLO to the Wed/Thu rotation and the SGB will have to put on the back burner till I complete TLO. Then there's the NNC Card Swap organised by Ying. So that's on the plate this week too. Have a great week ahead everyone!
Comment Notes: Thank you all for coming by and commenting. I really really do appreciate you taking the time to do so. And Shari if you're reading this, you can browse through the many many finishing techniques found at Focus on Finishing. There's bound to be one on drawstring bags!
