Sew bad luck…..

After waiting for a couple of months to get back to the RSN, I was finally booked in last weekend and was so looking forward to putting the finishing touches to my crewel work – before hopefully mounting. Unfortunately (and I blame the little ones at school entirely), I chose this week to be ill! I managed to drive in and spend the morning in class, but as soon as lunch hit – that was it! All I managed to stitch were a few French knots around the head of my bird. Owen demonstrated feather stitch in the tail, which came out immediately as I didn’t like it. Spent the rest of the week moping!

On the plus side I finally got my pass – so now can get into class early and not have to wait to be escorted through the palace. Christmas was also on show at the Palace.DSC_0524

About wybrow1966

My name is Deborah, and my earliest recollection of being creative is learning how to smock at primary school. We had a wonderful, white-haired lady who came in once a week to teach the 'girls' how to sew. I am not sure what the boys got up to during this time - but I never once felt as though I was missing out on anything. Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging. Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....

  1. Sorry you haven’t got as much done as you’d hoped. I love the bird though. What stitches have you used across his body? Hope you’re feeling better now

    I’m sorry to hear you’ve not been well, there’s a lot of different things going around at the moment. I hope you can get back some rhythm in the new year. It does look fabulous though, you are doing a fantastic job!

    I love seeing your updates on this piece, no matter how small 🙂 It looks wonderful! But being sick at this time of year really sucks. I intended stitching over the weekend but didn’t even pick up the needle. The Christmas tree is still very patiently waiting to be put up as well 😧

      Finally feeling a little bit more like myself now and Christmas has finally arrived in our house – the tree is up and all my old favourites are now hanging from it! Hope to do a little more stitching over the holidays.

    Fancy choosing to be ill this close to Christmas!! Seriously though, there’s so much of it going around – I’m in my third week of yuckiness myself and it’s not much fun when there’s so much to do. The crewel work is looking lovely despite your perceived lack of progress. Fingers crossed that your bug moves on soon and you can get back to normal.
