It's now March so I had to remove my February stitchery from its hanger and put up the March one I completed. I have now finished April and it is ready to cut to a better size and have the border sewn on . With all these minis I have chosen my fabrics first then coordinated the threads with them. I have finally learned to do it this way after years of making projects and finding it so hard to match up fabrics. Dah!!! I can't believe it has taken me so long to work it out!
I have been keeping up with the Splendid Sampler blocks , well I thought I had. Do you know what I did? I cut back the 2nd and 3rd blocks to 6" x 6" instead of six and a half inches square!!!! I made the mistake of reading the top of the instructions that said the finished block was 6 inches square. When I read the bottom of the instructions I realised my mistake and I am NOT happy!!! Any other silly people out there? Nope? I thought not. Anyhoo, I have soldiered on and made this block and now have the latest 2 to make before redoing the ones I did wrong.
At least the Tiny Teacup Teddies make me happy I have made 3 more with only 2 left to stitch. I am really looking forward to making them into the table topper.
I must get back to Lucy this week.
