I saw this delightful alphabet panel and immediately wanted to make bunting from it so after putting on backing, wadding and some ric rac it is destined for my youngest little great nephew. Should be fun and it is the first on my list 'To Do'.
It is smocking class next week and I am still working on my sampler. It went with me on my Northumberland break and I never did a stitch and so I have been sewing every night to catch up. I am finding it quite hard as there is a lot of accuracy required and that is not my forte at all. However maybe J, our teacher, will not notice!! Some hopes!
I MUST finish off all the loose ends on my embroidery and put some beads into the last row of drawn thread work, as I want to get it framed before we start back in September. You will say "You have the whole of August", but time just seems to slip by and it is still waiting to be finished.
Oh, and after a stifling hot day we have just had a spectacular thunderstorm and it is now raining which has brought the temperature down. Brilliant.
