ANOTHER MONTH GONE BY-


You will never find time for anything. If you want time,                    you must make it.”
Charles Buxton


Yes it IHSW again, how quickly the month has gone by. It is time for me to pull out the Wool Gatherer and see how much stitching I can add over these couple of days. The sun is shining  right into the room onto my stitching corner.
 First I want to share with you news I received last night, a group of about 25 ladies today will be stitching my Little flowers ort box. Quite a thrill to know so many were interested. This piece was designed two years ago for my Stitching Friends group. One of the Stitching friends will be taking the class Lyn is an embroidery tutor and specialises in Wessex stitchery I have shown some of her work on my blog in the past.

 
This is the little folding orts box they are making, starting today with their fabric tacked up ready and then meeting again in three weeks to learn the construction. I will put a Here's How on my other blog
after the weekend so if you are interested in making one watch over there for the instructions.
 
Now it is time for me to be away and start stitching, reporting back after the weekend.
Happy Stitching everyone.

I just discovered your blog through Annette's, she linked to the tutorial for the beautiful strawberry you made for her.

You work is exquisite! I am now following both your blogs in the hope that I will learn to improve my own finishing.
