Yesterday I decided to make a start on a biscornu for the Monthly Finishing Challenge. I chose my pattern, the fabric and floss and just before I sat down, the phone rang so I took the call and then settled down in my favourite spot to stitch but, before I had even threaded the needle, the phone rang again. I got up, took the call and sat down. This time I managed to get a few stitches in before the phone rang yet again! By this time I was getting slightly annoyed but I answered the call and then, as I was putting the phone back into the base, I dropped it down behind the unit - arrgghh - I just want to sit quietly and stitch! I managed to retrieve the phone by using a spatula to drag it from behind the unit and this time took a little more care in putting it back into the base. At last I could settle and just look how much I managed to do. I only have a few more stitches to put into the middle and then stitch the back. It's a little larger than my usual biscornus being 3 3/4" square but it's quite pretty. The pattern is January Quaker by The Work Basket, the fabric is 35ct optic white Brussels linen and the floss is Au Ver a Soie 1714 which is a pretty denim blue. I am sorry about the poor quality photos but it's raining and really dreary here today so hopefully the photos of the finished piece will be much clearer. By the way none of the phone calls were actually for me - maybe I should charge Ken for secretarial services? LOL
Enjoy the weekend.
Thanks for visiting
