I felt so terrible as I managed to run quite late - I had to go home because I was convinced that I'd left the hob on (I hadn't), and as a result, missed two buses and then the train by one minute! Thankfully, I wasn't too late, and arrived to find the lovely ladies hadn't yet started. Aneela commented that it felt like we'd known each other for ages, and it was great to see at least one smiling face that I recognised.
We were very productive during the session, despite me getting distracted by chatting, eating chocolate brownies and drinking all of their Apple and Rhubarb juice, and I managed to complete my embroidery (there's a photo on Aneela's blog of my nearly finished hoop - is it geeky that I'm quite excited by that??)
(Please excuse the rubbish in the background of this photo!)
When I got home, I used some squares of Sew Stitchy to frame the embroidery. I was being lazy and didn't want to cut too much, so I left the embroidery at 9 1/2"sq - this feels a little big though.... We were discussing the art of knowing when to stop, but I'm not yet adept at this - do you think that it needs a bit more detailing to balance it out?
This will hopefully be going to a Gran (as in, one of our three Grans, not a random one!)
Oh, and to prove that I am making progress with the other items.............
I've done some more of my HST BOF blocks!
(and by some I mean "made the HSTs and trimmed them for one of the other five blocks which I need to make"......)
