Enthusiasm is great :-)



Watering the Garden is done. I am starting on the Bird Bath tonight. Gosh, I almost did that wrong,did`t I, having drawn the Dovecote. Glad I now wrote to you :0)
Not sure which of the fabrics to use,always the most difficult thing for me choosing fabrics. Still looking for the very old one, probably not in the shops anymore.
So I might use what you see here.
Anyway,on the other picture you see the lid where I have one needle for each colour, makes it very easy when I change colours. The lid fits into the book-shelf,so it really looks tidy when I finish for the day. I also use the vlieseline on the bac
of the stitchery fabric. Then no colour shows through. But do not iron on it, because it very often glues to a warm iron. Well, better make dinner now.
Happy Stitching to you from a cold country way up north :-)

Love your fabric choice and what a great idea with the box...

How wonderfully organised that is. I like the idea of having a needle for each thread! I always lose lengths of thread that are still on the needle when I finish a colour!
