Elephant and Monkey . There are a few more in the set , but I'm not sure if I want to do them or not. At the time I didn't have one of the threads that was needed for pretty much all of the rest of the charts ,and now it's kind of gone off the boil a bit .
And then , there was the pin cushion that I made for the giveaway , which is now winging its' way over to Lisa . I really enjoyed stitching it . for anyone who doesn't recognise it ,the chart is " 'Tis Red" from the 2010 ornament issue of JCS. I used one of the 21st Century thread I chose at the Harrogate stitch show ,and I was really pleased with it . The thread is only four strands , but is thicker than the usual stranded cotton , and I thought it gave really good coverage with just one strand . It feels really nice , and there was no fraying or problems at all . I really like how it turned out .
The fabric it is lying on is what I used for backing , I think the top picture is probably the most accurate colour wise . I'm looking forward to trying out more of those threads now, and it's looking hopeful that I will get to go to Harrogate again this year ,so fingers crossed that I do , and they are there again.
I have got back into the stitchy groove a bit , and am currently doing a couple of small projects for the kids , but I'll show those next time.
Thanks for dropping by ,
