I damp stretch my work at every stage, so for example, once the applique is done this piece is damp stretched before the rest of the embroidery goes on. Well that's how it should be. However.........if you look bottom left on this picture below you will see two little cross stitch flowers, I couldn't restrain myself, I had to try them! So based on this ''naughty'' sampling I am going to finsh this little lady with more of these.
Well it's wednesday already. I have to admit the weeks do go by quickly yet I still feel I don't get enough of MY stuff done in the evenings, I feel so frustrated. I have a weeks holiday soon and intend to make the most of it, lots of stuff for the Makey Do will be made that won't go in the shop until I come back from there. I would love to finish this doll before next week, finish my commission and then concentrate purely on things for July, at least that's the plan, fingers crosssed!
