many years ago in another life i had a job that, among other things, entailed interviewing families..this meant lots of driving especially at night..i noticed that i was finding it increasingly difficult to read street signs without getting out of the car and literally peering up at the sign..because of this problem i began to harbour anxious fears that i was going blind..it didn't occur to me immediately that all i needed was a pair of glasses..
basting stitches and papers need to be removed before being
hand sewn onto the tea towel
paper piecing required followed by the same stages as
the cherry hexagon
this week in between lots of gardening and shed tidying i've been trying out a few ideas for embellishing linen tea towels that i plan to sell at a market in 5 weeks time..i decided to make hexagon rosettes and i've embroidered the central hexagons to reflect the fabric design..this entails quite fine stitching and i've been struggling with my eyesight again..
it's time for new glasses or i will have to throw in the (tea) towel! :) jane
