We’re off tomorrow!
I didn’t think I’d be joining in this time, because of holiday prep, but I managed to get a bit of stitching done amongst the other handwork, packing, shopping, etc, that lead up to our departure. It’s not quite as much as I’d have liked, but that’s my own fault for slipping in all sorts of extra jobs: making and installing the Lime & Soda porch curtain, mending, crocheting dish cloths, making a pouch for our Garmin SatNav, and of course, the ongoing big job: hand quilting the Bonnard quilt I’m making for my sister.
This is where I left you last time:
And this is where I’ve got to. A bit more light green, and the first bit of white. I can see that the white is really going to make this piece sparkle, and I’m going to make the grey of the background a little darker than on the original design to give contrast.
Do go and take a look at what the others in the Stitch Along are working on. It’s all lovely, and well worth looking at. Do remember that we’re all in different time zones, so if their SAL post isn’t up when you look, do go back later.
See you next time, on 3rd March. Hopefully clearing up after the holiday doesn’t eat up all my stitching time 🙂
