The weeks have past quickly again and school life is in full swing – meaning my sewing time is limited but I have managed to make some progress with my Christmas bauble kit by Kate Barlow. Last time it looked like this…..
I then made a start on couching the Japanese thread, starting with the long blue bauble.
Of course this sort of stitching then results in a lot of threads that need plunging to the back of the work so they can be stitched or held in place in groups of 3-4 threads.
I had set myself a target of finishing all the Japanese thread work, but time (and other projects) meant that I only made a start on the big pink bauble. So here is where I am up to now….
Next time we catch up I hope to have all the Japanese thread work completed and to have made a start on the pine branches.
