I intend to put in the last stitches on 30 October 2007! I personalised mine to reflect NnC where the SHS is being circulated. Good idea? But I would like to re do "NnC" in a darker tone.
I had frogged the littles hearts slated in the space between my name and the completion date twice already. I guess the original large heart motif is going into that space!
When you have to frog a certain area twice or more... its time to take a breather! Gonna concentrate on the house this weekend travelling down to Melaka. Yup, making another trip back there and coming back to Kuala Lumpur only on Monday!
Received the "Home of A Needleworker" by Little House Needleworks chart via Dropzone from Nik on Tuesday, 9th October 2007 and I have three weeks to stitch it before sending it over to our Margaret Wong on 30th October? Or shall I just hand it over to her personally at our 1st Anniversary Meetup on 3rd November? Great idea?
Here is what I stitched so far for the last two nights. I stitched the roof while watching a handsome doctor lift off into space!
I had the chance to compare two brands of size 28 needles, DMC (pack I bought for the FRE project) and Piecemakers (sold by Jean). DMC needles are fragile while Piecemakers are firm despite the size. Ok Piecemakers win hands down!
The SHS being a small project, I am using the decorative hoop (rubber outer piece with plastic for the inner one) to stitch it. Very handi and easy peachy putting in and the taking out of the fabric from it! Love this purchase. Check out Dania's Mother shop at her site!
I started a small piece of stitching, a JBW Design ~ French Country ~ Rooster! Bought it from Jean's online store. Using DMC 75, one over on a 20ctn yellow fabric I picked up real cheap ~ RM1 for a fat quarter!
I used a decorative hoop to hold the fabric while stitching. The hoop is plastic and the wood grain looks very real. The hoop come in 2 sizes and I bought them from Dania's mother's online store! Sorry - I cleaned the shelf out of them!
Sad to announce that I have to get used to being by myself from this year onwards..... on sundays only! Eldest gurl being 24 is independent and living on her own; second gurl just started serious training at AirAsia.... and studying for exams.
So I went out by myself and stashed mags for work and crafts, threads, knitting needles, crochet needles. Even went for a long overdue facial!
I finished the bed runner on saturday and here are the pictures:
