Had a spare hour today and thought that I would use it productively (as opposed to simply staring at a blank report sheet!), so I have slip stitched around the mistletoe leaves in readiness for Saturday when I think that I will be shown long and short stitch. I started to satin stitch one set of leaves – but am not happy with the edges, so this might have to be unpicked. I will take a fresh look at them tomorrow and then decide.
I also think that I might add something to the bottom of the hillocks so that I can include some block work – this will then free up the flowers so that I can use some more adventurous choices of stitches. I haven’t yet discussed this with the tutors – so I hope they feel the same way!
