“Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.” ― Molière
My weekend was frustrating, how I will need patience in the months ahead. I started my stitching for IHSW with a lot of enthusiasm, I had previously some time ago sorted all the threads that came in the kit, carded them and wrote both the number and the symbol on the card, which I knew would be a help because as the cataract has developed I knew I was at the stage where distinguishing between certain shades was a problem . I am still fortunate that seeing and stitching on the fine linen is no problem but my downfall came after I had stitch an area to find I could not tell the difference in the threads I had just stitched, these soft and some what beautiful muted shades had all blended into one. I have also found it impossible to stitch soft toning's at night so that will limit a little what I stitch and when. However all is not lost, I can still stitch and I made a fresh start changing some of the colours a little....................... here is my small progress for the weekend on The Wool Gatherer by Shepherd's Bush .when next month's Hermit weekend comes around I will be better prepare to cope and enjoy..
Before the weekend I finished stitching The Bee Keeper another Shepherd's bush design, this Kit came to me from Annette at Christmas time and I stitched with it Tending the Blooms one that I had previously stitched some time ago, not yet mounted I think they will make a nice pair of floss ring tags
I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend's stitching look forward to visiting blogs to see.
