I’ve been busy with lots of mystery stitching – most of it for exchanges. So I don’t have much stitching to show you. But I did find a spare hour on Sunday night to finally finish up the patchwork chickens my mum made for me. If you remember, she knocked up the log cabin squares, added in the comb and beak, and sewed them together, leaving me one seam open to stuff the chickens with rice. After all, it doesn’t make much sense to pay to post a load of rice from Canada to the UK :)
So, half a bag of Sainsbury’s Value Rice, several stitches and 4 black plastic beads later, the chickens are done, ta da! They’re now happily clucking on the kitchen windowsill.
And, of course, here is this week’s instalment of my progress on Paradigm Lost. I’ve been stitching for 16 weeks on this SAL – and still very motivated - so I'm grateful to Dani and Kathy for persuading me to join. I’m about 25% done – so it looks as if I won’t be finished this until early 2009. Phew, what a project! In the more short-term, I should be finished up page four a bit later this month.
Happy stitching and enjoy your weekend!
