Although I didn’t make any official resolutions for the New Year, because I very rarely keep them, I did make a mental note to myself that I need to finish off some of the many cross stitch pieces I completed over the years and just bunged in a drawer. I suppose it was when we were packing and sorting last year before the move that I realised just how many pieces I had in my drawer ^^ Add to that, the vast fabric supply I have managed to hoard . . . so really no excuse not to do some sewing.
In August I stitched a free blackwork design BLACK CAT
using DMC 310 and Threadworx “Mosaic”. That variagated thread, going from purple to green to turquoise, is one of my favourites ^^ Anyway, I thought about making a cushion cover but Threadworx threads are not colourfast, so wouldn’t be suitable for an item that would need washing. So . . .
I made a wall-hanging instead. This floral fabric seemed perfect and I also used four buttons (the same as for my most recent patchwork bag) when I attached my loops.
Another happy dance ^^ and I hope to have many more this year.
