Just a quick update on Hannah Beeby
. I decided to work down the left hand side and then across the page. I am so enjoying stitching on Hannah even though it's on 40ct linen. I wish I had used my Millenium frame and floor stand though as using Q-Snaps, which I remove when I am not stitching, it does have a 'pulled through a hedge backwards' look to it. I hope I will be able to remove all the creases once it's finished as I will be loathe to press with a damp cloth after the fiasco with the freebie chart piece where the colours ran. I must check out to see if Needlepoint Inc silk is colourfast.
I have also nearly finished my re-start on the QFRR
. I only have the rabbit to stitch and I have to decide whether to stitch him in a different colour and, if so, what colour to use. I am mindful to stitch him in grey and then frog the initials and date and use the same grey there but I need to search my stash for the right grey. I really should have thought about this before I started! The green/black silk I'm using is a Vicki Clayton premium silk - Imperialosity.
Now it's time for those household chores - do they never end? Perhaps I should have done them before I sat down at the computer!
Thanks for visiting
