TUSAL August 2012

Whoops, I'm late again.

Apologies for the picture quality, the following were taken on my iPhone.



There's a few bits of sparkle in there now, mainly because I parked the HAED this month as we have been decorating, so I discovered that the Tile 2 below had been started.  So I decided to finish it.

Tile 2 is from West End Embroidery and I bought it at the stitching show last October.  I've found it pretty challenging because I'm used to working in crosses, and I find metallic threads very frustrating as was the dark purple thread which I struggled to keep taught sometimes.

Still, it looks rather pretty.  It doesn't fit with anything in this flat at all though, so I guess it's going in a drawer.

    1. Thanks so much Holly - it was ok once I got into the swing of the stitches and didn't need to stare at the patten as much :) x
