TUSAL September 2012

Ok, Ok.  I'm late again.  I do have a good reason though, I've been halfway up the country to visit my folks.  That's ok, right.

Here's how my jar looks now:


And here's the travelling pattern I've been putting a few stitches in here and there... and over the week:


It seemed to stitch up quite fast at first, but has rapidly slowed down.  I think I'm about halfway though, so that's ok.  I don't normally get on with hoops, but this piece is just an awkward size where it's too big to hold in my hand and too small to fit on a scroll frame. So I am trying the hoop.

I'll be catching up on everyone else's posts this week, hope you all have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks so much! I enjoy only picking it up periodically because I'm not really enjoying the petit point. Be glad when it's done, but I have 2 more in my stash to do after that!

    1. Thank you :) It's actually pretty relaxing to stitch in general, but this has not been one of my favourites - however I think when it's complete it'll look really nice.
