Sorry for belated post but I was so worn out from our trip to Turkey (arrived in Amman on the 1st of Sept).
So here is my report:
|done the top right after August IHSW|
|continue the bottom right, love the colours already even when its only 1/3 finished!|
|middle top took longer to stitch, need to concentrate because of the colours and many twirly spaces|
|finally done the moon in the middle. can you see the siluet of the woman, a hand holding a cup and the smoke?|
I stopped stitching about one week before August ended because it was our last week in Turkey so I wanted to focus on last minutes shopping, packing and visiting relatives.
Overall I love stitching Silvermoon Tea alot, the chart is great and the colours are amazing. I still need to get used to stitching on linen, I think an experienced stitcher could have done it better than me but I am still happy with the result considering this is my first attempt.
In the beginning of the month I set up some goals:
1. Stitching on linen: Done. Therefore GOLD medal for me
2. Stitching full design on fabric: Did it but couldn't finish the whole design. Therefore SILVER medal for me.
3. Stitching the beads: Intended to but couldn't do it because I haven't finished the stitching. Therefore BRONZE medal for me.
Here I want to show off my medals to you :)
We all love gadgets, and none better than the teensy tools and holders we make ourselves. Let's stitch some smalls--needlebooks, fobs, biscornus, scissors keeps, pincushions--or knit some teensy things--amigurumi, jewelry, sachets....
I think I will make biscornu and if I still have time I want to make needlebooks and pincushion too :) See you next time! I hope you all enjoy your Altius August (I know you do!) but if you haven't joined at all, lets join us and lets have fun together!
