I’m not doing so much stitching in the evenings at the moment but I do have a small project that I have been working on. When I say small, I am referring to its dimensions. In terms of work and hours I don’t think it counts as a 'small' project!
I really must stop surfing the web because I keep finding irresistible online classes like this Bird Thimble Holder by The Essamplaire. The kit arrived several weeks ago but the first lesson was not published until mid-September, just two days before I left for a week’s holiday in Portugal. Although I took it with me, I did nothing while I was away. When I returned home I was very keen to get started.
The first step was to make the body form. This is made from two pieces of linen stitched together and stuffed with wadding. The instructions said to make the body a firm as possible.
