My Sunday was spent sewing. I'd already cut out the pieces needed for Dawn's lovely Baseco bag. So off to a flying start with all prepared & the result is this. Had to be purples for me. :)
After a small rest i put 2 small wallhangings together that have been sitting as finished tops for maybe 2 years. Before that they were tops for 3 years. I'd ironed the applique on & that was it. So i'm sitting there last night merrily sewing the binding down when i realised one was supposed to have embroidery on it. Damn.
The embroidery looks very naive/country style. It's says "Love Thy neighbour". Pattern by the Chook Shed girls. Hard to get good hired help these days. :) Last night i thought i'd better check a few other small hangings to see if embroidery needed & yes i discovered 2. Today i sat to finish sewing down the binding on number 2 wallhanging only to discover it to needed a small amount of embroidery. Just not my day/s.
Here's number 2. Also from the Chook Shed. Prepared oh so long ago. :).
Well i did have an excuse about the embroidery. Sick 4 days last week with migraine so was very tired & then had an 8 year olds birthday party Saturday. Then i've wound up with a cold & sore throat. So i'm not thinking straight. :) Thats my story & i'm sticking to it.
