I’ve been trying to stitch a Dear Jane block today, A11 Pebble’s Protest (aptly named almost should be Elly’s Protest) I thought all was going well. Here are some photos I was taking of it along the way….
So far so good>
Until I tried to stitch the centre together :(( Not so good. I had paper pieced the middles and those sharp triangles and as a result the seams were going in the same direction as each other when I was trying to join them. Despite a few frog stitching and re-stitching efforts it was not going to play nice…. here’s a close up of the offending centre:-
I am going to have to do it all over again :(( or I won’t be a happy bunny. I think I will hand piece the entire thing.
And now for something not Dear Jane.
I also completed a couple of stitchery blocks from Lynette Anderson’s “My Garden” BOM and here they are:-
Number 3 and
Number 4. I am way behind on these :-/
Finally, one last picture. :))
Taken on Christmas Eve of the starter DD made for out supper. Some Chinese Tea Eggs…. decorated to look like….. MUSHROOMS :))
The idea to turn the eggs into mushrooms with some halved tomatoes was mine but DD did it. These made me think of my friend Katrin as she loves mushrooms ;-D They were delicious too.
Well that’s it for now. I wonder what ufo I’ll pull out to work on this week…
