I have had a few stitch free days due to ill health but on one of these days I sat in bed doing something fairly simple that required little concentration and not much accuracy, SASHIKO. I bought a tablerunner piece at the fair to make these lovely stars to hang up as Christmas ornaments. I just need to stitch some Christmas fabric backing onto them, add some string to hang them and stuff them with polyfill. Unfortunately ,this is a sort of fussy cut thing and I have left over fabric that I can.t do much with. I shall need to come up with a creative idea to use it.
I have completed the last 2 stitcheries for my Woodland Secrets quilt. It is getting exciting now.
I subscribed to Simply Vintage magazine and issue 11 arrived addressed to MME Ondrea . I got quite a kick out of being addressed as madame. So much more elegant than MS .I do love French even though I haven't done it for over 40 years.
So, this past week I have had a trip around the world. A bit of Japanese stitching, stitching woodlands of England and receiving a French magazine ( in English thank goodness!).
