I have stitched
the first set of six fillings and am using silk threads from my stash.Each filling uses just a small amount of
thread, so this project is perfect for using leftovers from other projects.
charts for this project allow for all different sizes and number of
fillings.If you’d like to join us,
leave me a comment and link to your Box of Delights post.
the day for the next set of instructions to come out! I’m looking forward to
finding out what the new set of instructions are. I really appreciate the
orderliness of these instructions, coming out the first Thursday of the month
and not too much to do each month.
month’s instructions were to make 34 square in a square pieces, 6.5 inches by
6.5 inches.Here are mine -
You can see my flying geese pieces from the month before here.
winner of the USA chart is … Linny! Congratulations! I sent you an email asking for your postal address and will send the chart as soon as I hear back from you.
continuing with my year-long attempt at finishing projects that have been stuck
and lay unfinished for far too long.The
next project on my list is this beaded shawl.It was a class from the Chicago EGA National Seminar.Unfortunately, I did not finish it promptly
when I returned home from the seminar.When I picked it up to work on here in Japan, I discovered the kit was
short on beads.If I had discovered the
shortage when still living in the US, I would have contacted the teacher.After all this time and the distance, I did
not.I was very upset about using other
beads and put the project aside.
was an expensive class and kit, so I do want to finish it one way or another. I’m
disappointed that it won’t be finished as originally intended, but I’m
determined to do the best that I can with what I have. I'll try to have some progress to show next week.
