A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
It's TUSAL time again! For those of you new to blogging, the TUSAL is a project run by Daffycat, click on the button on the right hand bar for more details.
Here is my ORTS jar posing with the current stitching project:
And this is the part I worked on this week:
This is Pretty Little London from Satsuma Street my Tuesday SAL with Linda and Kate. Or, for this week, my USAL (Un Stitch A Long). You can possibly see the holes in the area between the two red columns? That is this week's reverse stitching. The problem was that when I started the project I was missing one colour. So I decided to substitute it for another which looked fine in the first area I used it. I duly noted the new number on the chart and continued. However when I used it for the Gherkin it looked awful, totally wrong for that area. So I bit the bullet and paid out 95p for the proper colour.
However, when it came to the latest building (Buckingham Palace) I inadvertently used the substituted colour. Which looked OK until I added the red columns and then it looked awful. So I'm restitching in the correct colour which you can see attached to the needle in the photo!
The rest of this week was taken up finishing my exchange piece which has been parcelled up and sent off to my partner. It may even have arrived by now!
Short post today. I've been at work all day and sat down to read a few blogs and noticed the TUSAL posts. Darn! Hadn't realised it was today! So a quick post to make sure I'm on time.
