So I managed to sit down and have 5 minutes today. Which means I got a little update on my mini.
Soon will be the dreaded moment. Backstitch. I do love the detail it creates but with fiddly pieces it can drive completely up the wall. You may find that as quickly as you will see some pieces progress others will suddenly become silent WIPs because of back stitch. You do all have permission to ask where a piece have gone but be aware the answer maybe I just can’t cope with the backstitch.
In other works I got a little done on my tut, as it is affectionately known.
I realised when looking back I never gave a full explanation for this one. It is the Tutankhamun Superchart that CrossStitcher released….erm….a very long time ago now. Google tells me it was about 2008. Google also shows what it should look like when it is finished.
One reason it is taking me so long to complete is I can lose my stitchy bug for literally years at a time. During my second and third years at university I think I made about 100 stitches in the whole 2 years. The other is that I am a chronic starter. If I actually went through my stash properly I would properly find at least another dozen half started pieces.
So I think I should have a stern word with myself and try to complete at least one of these poor forgotten half starts this year.
And now to have a tea and pick up my needle and thread.
