In keeping with a tradition some stitchers have, I started a new design to mark the new year. I decided on a design by The Drawn Thread, one of my all time favourite designers.
Morning Glory, Drawn Thread
Fabric – 32 count Pewter Belfast linen
Threads – Weeks Dye Works/DMC as stipulated
I’ve also spent a couple of days sorting out patterns that I’d like to stitch in 2011:
I’d also like to stitch a few designs from the Goode Huswife Book of Designs Vol III
A little ambitious, don’t you think? especially given the state of my eyesight. I remain full of optimism, however 🙂 I’m booked in to St John of God Hospital for my eye surgery on 24 January, which is only two weeks away now. Do you think I’ll be able to stitch f aster when it’s all over? I sincerely hope so ❗
In the meantime, I continue to enjoy the last few days of my holidays – back to work next Monday 17 Jan.
Happy Stitching 😉
