February Project

I've made a start on the February project of the Tote Bag.

This was the stitchery when i arrived at the Mater Hospital with my son to get his broken leg looked at:


After two sessions at the hospital, this is it:

Definitely prgogress. Ive just stitched this on tea stained home spun. Happy with the look, but today i bought some linen for another project. Wow! Forgotten how beautiful that fabric is, so I'm tempted to try it using the linen -which is recommended anyway.

I just love the fabric Natalie has used in her sample. So thinking of sticking to these colours. Will sort these fabrics next week.

Cheers

Hope your son is doing OK - but great progress and I'm sure it helped you relax a bit too. I love sewing on linen too - though its a bit trickier to trace onto.
