Embroidering in pyjamas!

Embroidering in PJ’s is NOT a good idea. I now have two holes in my PJ pants as I caught it while embroidering and didn’t notice until quite a few stitches later – no way was I prepared to unpick, was easier to cut it free. And I did this twice!

But when I embroider I have a supervisor, checking out everything. And catching the thread every now and then

Holiday needlework

I love school holidays – it means needlework, relaxing, reading, sleeping in and blobbing on the couch! Finished more Splendid Sampler blocks, embroidered block 1 of 6 for a quilted blanket and finished a smocked dress!

More SS done!

I am up to date with the Splendid Sampler blocks and I think the last block is my absolute favourite. It is called Measure twice, cut once …┬áThere is one I didn’t make, or rather made but didn’t redo, it is one with stars and lots of points. I might do it at the end of the project, or maybe not at all
