Bit of a break?

I am booked in for day 3 of the RSN certificate course in two weeks time. Much as I would like to spend the intervening period getting as much of my crewel work piece as possible done – I have decided it would be more prudent to stop stitching. I am really worried that the composition is just a little too conservative and brown – and don’t want to spend all of day 3 unpicking! Maybe once I get to work on the flowers and hillocks it will look more colourful as I plan to do much of these in greens and oranges.

So, to keep busy, I thought I would work on the recording of my progress and how decisions have changed after talking with tutors on day 1 and 2.DSC_0131 (2)I am not quite sure what form these notes are supposed to take and I have not seen any examples of other peoples work – so am winging it a bit! I have made little pockets out of brown card and slotted all plans, inspiration and any other notes into these. I thought I could hand sew a cover too – quite pleased so far! I have also prepared a couple of examples of stitch work which I will attach to the back of each page – somehow!

If nothing else – it keeps me busy!

Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....
