I still have not finalised the finishing on the owls, but I know that I am either going to back it onto a canvas or make it into a wall hanging piece - Unfortunately my sewing skills to make a lovely pillow fall short but I will get there one day - I'm determined!
I've been stitching both Enchanting Geisha and the mother wolf and cub, so have a few pictures as an update
I was a little annoyed knowing how much black I have left to stitch, I ran out of thread! I am so frugal with my threads aswell, as it was only black I thought I may aswell get two DMC threads worth as I needed alot of different colours grey that I didn't have in my stash for mum and cub, so I didn't mind then having to order. I always order for sew and so, but their price for threads are a little eye watering but when needs must I will pay, until I saw in a magazine that across town stitching done 50 threads for £16 - Great! I done my order and patiently waited..... and waited, a week had past and nothing, I emailed and nothing and then 11 days later they arrived! Hooray! I was annoyed as I had placed an order a week before I had gone on holidays and really wanted to crack on with the kimono but I was stuck with frustrating confetti instead, so progress on her had been quite slow unfortunately.
Wolf mother and little cub
These are the updated pics for Saturday and Sundays stitching, as I stitched geisha the week before I thought only fair that I spent a weekend on my little cub. There is so much confetti with different colour greys on the little cub it is painfully slow and confusing at times to say the least!
Well stitching will come to a halt this week, Shaun has a terrible cold and I feel little queasy myself tonight, and I am back into work tomorrow after 11 days off - Oh the pain!
Hope you are all well
