This seems to be my current “portable” craft. This also quite often has a tie in with my collecting (see collecting page) as I like to stitch the Beatrix Potter kits and also have some of the Green Apple series of Beatrix Potter pattern books.
This used to be my nemesis and the thing that taught me to do one thing at a time. I am not a lover of backstitch again probably to do with the “random” nature of it. This is the bit that used to get left along with large patches of background. Through determined effort all the half finished kits got completed and the backlog of purchased unstarted kits now stands at one (April 2010).
The current kit I am working on is sampler that should become the centre piece of “THE BIG ONE”.
One of my favourite completed kits
