Tusal - December 2012

Ho, Ho, Ho!

I made it to the end of the year of Tusals.  I looked at my little pot... and I thought... 'Is that all? For a whole year? Pathetic.'  But I think that is the nature of working on a big HAED and parking the stitches, you don't find yourself fastening off and cutting so much, you just keep going until the thread has run out.

This year I did something I have never done in my life.  I was in the mood to stitch a Pooh Bear design and I knew that I had started one a very long time ago.  I pulled it out.  I looked at it.  Then the pattern.  Then back at it.  I had gone wrong in more than one spot.  Then I looked at the fabric.  Quite grubby.  Then I looked at the back and saw the horror of threads going all over the place.  After that, I rifled through my fabric selection and pulled out a roughly the same size piece of cream Aida.

I started on this one all over again.  It feels cleaner, and neater and although the frog did come and visit me, I have fixed that now and it looks fine again.

So the colourful bits in the top of my jar this month are from the Tigger's Log.
