What do you think? This is going to be a humbug (I know it just looks like some enbroidered fabric, but wait and see). The latest project from the Embroiders Guild I am a member of. The idea is to use a wide variety of stitches, including those not tackled before.
I look forward to the first Tuesday evening of the month as this is when the guild meet. I had such a good time this week; sitting, sewing, chatting and sharing ideas with like minded people. I have to drive to the next town, but it's worth it. Sometimes we have guest speakers, I particularly enjoyed looking at a vast array of buttons and buckles, collected by an enthusiast. It puts my modest little collection into the shade. For no matter how many buttons I have, there's always room for more.
I am in the process of gathering all the loose buttons I find in drawers and boxes, into a colour coded collection of glass jars.
Good for inspiration, will have to tackle my ribbon and lace collection next, if I ever get to the end of the buttons and beads.
