I’ve had a head cold the past week, and whilst it’s not enough to lay me too low (life does go on!) it’s been enough to fill my head with cotton wool so I can’t really concentrate.
In other words, the perfect time for some mindless sewing!
And mindless sewing I did, and I finished this:
It had all been glued down with a glue stick and Roxanne basting glue. So I just sat at the machine and stitched, trying to learn the new technique I picked up at last month’s class.
It’s a little bit hard to see, but I have machine stitched around all the flowers and then stippled the black within an inch of its life.
I ended up making a piped cushion with the panel. I have enough small wallhangings to last many lifetimes, and I thought a nice, bright cushion in the ‘good lounge’ would be a real treat. So that’s the plan.
It isn’t anywhere near my best work, but I think for a first go, I did okay!
