I finished another ATC last night - while I watched TV! I can never just sit and watch TV programmes and always need something to do with my hands - so usually I knit but last night I tried some hand stitching. Only sorbello stitch with a blanket stitch edging. ATCs seem a good size for trying out hand stitching as I'm not very fast. I worked it on the background of embellished yarn that I made on Sunday.
Then after I finished lots of lesson plans and notes on the computer today, I had time for a bit of machine stitching and I made this one - using the same background fabric.
I was interested to see how all three turned out so different, when they all started out with the same felted background. The embellished felt makes a lovely surface on which to stitch as it is soft but quite firm.
I would like to work on my Lutradur and lace sample now but the family want their dinner... how unreasonable!
