I don't have anything finished to show you this week so thought I'd better show you some of the pieces I'm currently working on. Yes, that's right, ... some! I know!
I don't know about you but I sometimes have periods when I'm feeling a bit down and unable to settle to anything and that's when I dip into my sketchbooks and pattern books and delve into the corners of my mind to see what might inspire me to pick up a needle and thread. It's not that I'm not already working on things of course - just that none of them are quite what I want to do at that time. And so I start on something new.
I'm not admitting to how many of these started and unfinished projects I currently have in my workbasket but here are a few of them.
In and amongst all this I'm working on some hem-stitched napkins for my daughter. I'd hoped to have them finished as a Christmas present but I obviously didn't start work on them soon enough and they're taking far longer to stitch than I'd anticipated, but at least she'll have a 'down payment' on the set of six that I've promised her.
