Bent Creek Big Zipper - Part 1
I was told that if I was sick of the sight of the dinosaurs then I should alternate stitching between them & something else.
The above is my other project, one I began a couple of years ago but made a mistake on so put into the too hard basket.
The mistake came about because I was trying to stitch a project without gridding first.
Basically, that meant frogging the lot and starting again.
And now? Now that I'm finished this section, I've discovered that the gridding on the next part doesn't line up with the grid lines of Part One.
Look for more news about the dinosaurs, soonish.
Meanwhile, the good news is that I have spent time and worked out my wee bit of Hardanger. We're not friends yet, but my poor piece of fabric hasn't yet been ripped from corner-to-corner. I took it out for a drive in the car on Tuesday night for some assistance from the friendly folks at The Embroiderers' Guild.
I somehow managed to stitch one part upside down on the fabric (as in I stitched it on the right side but what came out underneath was how it should be on the right side).
I suspect that is what comes as a result of getting a right hander to teach (me) a left hander stitching.
