Sew far, this holiday, we have been lucky enough to have had the sunshine with us and have enjoyed lots of long walks with the dog along the beach. The evenings have been quiet allowing time to rest and recuperate – and to do a little sewing. The canvas work is proving the perfect project as it is not too taxing on the brain. I wondered at first if I would enjoy it as I used to do a lot of tapestry work many years ago – most of which involved tent stitch, tent stitch and more tent stitch – hence the reason I stopped. But this little project uses a number of different stitches and also allows you to see how colour (and colour mixing) changes the look of each stitch.
I particularly enjoyed stitching the reversed cusion stitch and rice stitch – which can be seen in the top two boxes. Hopefully I should finish this over the rest of the week and then can think of what to do with the finished piece after that.
Finally a couple of photos of a few old birds that we have met on our travels!
