Early in August I boasted that I was going to tackle finishing off my “finished” projects, and attempt to do one a month. Well September almost came and went without me keeping that resolution . . . almost, but not quite!
I am very pleased to say that I finished not one, but THREE cross stitch projects! Yep – three in one afternoon. Not that any of the following took much time to do, it was more a question of just getting down to work. First of all . . . some framing. I bought two identical 50cm x 70cm frames a while back for my two Ink Circles cross stitch projects, but had to wait a few weeks for the cardboard mounts to arrive. I’m not too sure about the colour of my mounts, but there wasn’t a great deal of choice in the shop I went to. I’ll probably get used to them, the more I see them.
So, a drum roll please for a framed “Cirque des Cercles” and matching “Cirque des Triangles”.
I do have a picture hook on the wall opposite, for “Cirque des Triangles” but wanted to show both together.
And third finished finish . . . a very quick sewing project . . . just adding a zip and using some beige denim from a pair of jeans I cut up which no longer fit.
To make myself a little pouch for my crochet hooks. I know some people make needle rolls, but I just wanted to whizz up something really quickly to keep all my hooks together in one place. Not the world’s most creative (or brilliant) sewing, but it’ll do the job.
