It's been a while since I last posted and also since I last did any sewing - weeks in fact. Friday was a sewing day and I really enjoyed it. John wanted to go walking but I have a very painful knee so I stayed home. My knee hasn't stopped me from doing short walks so before I got started I took Missy for a walk. The weather was warm and dry and we both enjoyed our slow walk. Missy has discovered the joy of sniffs and was stopping frequently to enjoy flowers and anything else that looked like it needed to be sniffed.
Back at home I got my light box out so I could draw out another stitchery pattern. This one is done in redwork. It took a little time to trace it out. Later I'll find the thread I need to complete it. I've had the pattern some time but had originally decided not to stitch it. The pattern came in my quilting subscription box from Bramble Patch.
Next I started work on the table centre for my friend. When I last wrote I had cut the fabric. This is the pattern I'm using, it is also from Bramble Patch.
here are the fabrics again. Yesterday I finished cutting out all the triangles I need. Now I can start the sewing.
I also need a new pencil case. I wanted a bigger case and I decided a zipper pouch would do the job perfectly. Choosing the fabric I wanted took a little time but once I'd made a decision on that, it stitched together very quickly.
