Well ! I was confused about whether or not it was Friday Night Sew In . . . . . . . . so . . . . . . . . .I had a couple of Nights Sew In . . . . . . . . .one last night and one Friday night. LOL !
What's better than one night of sewing with friends, than two nights !
Friday night saw me trace out a few designs to make a set of place mats. I found the pattern in Patchwork and Stitching Vol. 14 No. 1 It has a few lovely projects that I am going to have to make in this volume, but the one I chose to start with is" Flowers For Tea " by the lovely Jennifer Reynolds of Elefantz. It is for a tea-cosy, trivet and two placemats.
Now I don't use a tea-cosy, although I do own a few tea-pots, so I have decided to use the four embroideries to make 4 placemats instead.
I also added a border to the last stitchery I finished . . . . . . . . . . and I hate it, so will be unpicking it sometime today. I really don't know what I was thinking !!!!! I will have to have a proper look in my stash instead of grabbing just anything !
I think I need something with more blue and pink rather than the green!
It's looking like it's going to be a lovely day here (a bit of rain over night) so I will go out to the garden for a bit (until my knees give me a hard time) and then back to the stitching and unpicking!
Hope everyone has a lovely Sunday.
