I do. Always. Even if I'm only going to be away a day or two. This trip I have taken 3 different projects with me.
The first is a pretty little cross stitch design in a kit which I bought at the Crewel Gobelin in Killara a couple of months ago when I went there with Jan. The sample in the shop had been made up into a little pin cushion.
As you can see, not a lot has happened with this one! Apart from anything else, I haven't had a lot of time to just sit and stitch.
But I also have to admit I am struggling with this for a number of reasons. Firstly, the linen is not an even weave, and it is a very fine one as well. Then the thread on the outer frame of the design is a very pale olive green, and it is getting completely lost on the brown background fabric. So I am finding it very hard to see what I am doing, and it is taking a long time to do.
The next project I brought is a set of quilt as you go hexi drinks coasters. I made a few of these last year, and my daughter piped up recently and asked me to make her some. So like a good Mumma, I am making her some more. LOL
The first step is to applique the teapot motif onto the background. They are cute and dead easy to make. This is actually the third one on which I am doing the applique. I will finish them off at home.
Lastly, I brought the makings of a biscornu with me, but that is still sitting in my work bag untouched. Not terribly interesting to show photograph, so you will have to wait for a photo on that one.
Linking up with Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching here. Why not take a look at what the others are working on?
