I managed to get the binding on this in time for Westbury Park Show & Tell last night in the hopes that someone could tell me what I did wrong! After I finished free machine quilting which I was fairly pleased with, I looked at the back, and was confronted with this....a LOOPY back.
I was told that I was not sewing fast enough:-0 so if this is correct hopefully after a LOT more practice it should improve!
Today I have most of the morning to myself and in an effort to complete some more PHD's I did some more embroidery on my Sheep picture (SVQ 25th Birthday Workshop) I have all the legs, feet, and tails done now so not much more to do.
I would like to have it finished in time for the forthcoming Severn Valley exhibition in February when they will all go on show together. I am not sure if I shall frame it (as per instructions) or make a cushion by adding some borders. I have made some progress on my knitted gloves and I have to say I am really proud of teaching myself to knit on 4 needles even if they get in a tangle from time to time, I have even dealt with dropped stitches from time to time (always a panic moment for me usually!!)
At Westbury Park our workshop was making Felt Beads, I did not make any last night, but I bought a little kit and will have a go at home, Sue the tutor is doing the same workshop at SVQ in February so I may surprise her with a necklace.
Well better go and cook lunch, I'm off to DD's in Gloucester later to help her out with her Slimming World Group this evening. Did I tell you all she decided to become a SW counselor last September, after losing 61/2 stone (91pounds) in the last year, her group has been relatively small then last week 20 new members turned up (HELP she cried!!!).
Bye for now
