Sorry for the lack of updates, I'm just not getting much time at my laptop at the moment. Mainly because Christopher is fascinated by it especially the keyboard so I'm finding it better not to have it on when he's around. I'm doing the bulk of my blog reading on my phone as a result but I struggle with commenting on it so I apologise if I don't leave as many as I would like.
Anyway onto much pleasanter things. As I mentioned in my last post I had the great pleasure of taking the Fruits of the Vine class with Ellen Chester of With My Needle while she was in the UK. In the class she had us working on the speciality stitches on the needleroll, since I got back I've started to fill in the other bands and I've discovered that I took my inability to count to the class with me and I got some of the spacing wrong. Nothing that couldn't be worked around (so far) however.
I've also made progress on Teresa Wentzlers Above the Clouds. It's almost a year since I last shared progress on this one and I have now finished all the cross stitch on the bottom half. Just the wings and the backstitching to go
