Well it’s been a week now since Chooky’s weekend where we all stitched with her to celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of the Chookshed. So I thought I had better pull finger and quickly get a post up, although since I have become a bit of a slack blogger I don’t think many people read my blog anymore, oh well I’ll still do it. (I think its Facebook and Instagram which makes our blog posts become less.)
So on the Friday evening I managed to finish this stitchery “Live Simply” from Leanne’s House. I did it just in black and red as I am going to make it into a cushion for the couch and these are the dominant colours I wanted.
Then somehow I got these two pairs of work trousers slipped onto my lap to get hemmed. So that I did and I’ll count it as an achievement since it was sewing.
And to finish the weekend I was stitching this pattern “Pansy Cottage” from Rosalie Quinlan which we got at our Indulge in Stitches weekend. I managed to complete the stitchery last Thursday evening. I really enjoyed using the Cottage Garden thread as it really showed up beautiful when using chain stitch and satin stitch.
So that was my weekend’s achievements. Thanks Chooky for giving us the excuse and kick that was needed to get going!
