I was rather disconcerted when reading the instructions it stated that you should start in the bottom right hand corner! Geez...that freaks out the OCD part of me. One part of my brain was telling me that I should follow the instructions but the other part was yelling 'but what if you stitch a huge chunk of it and then realize you've run out of fabric!?!!' Arghhh. So I decided to compromise! I counted out all the threads in the fabric, found the middle then counted backwards so that I could start in the bottom right hand corner....both parts of my brain satisfied....but I'm still nervous that I'll run out of fabric!!!
So perhaps in a few weeks time I'll have a finished set of 'heilan coos'! (as long as I have enough fabric....paranoid or what?!!)
Just before I left to go to Scotland I found out that I had won Kim's giveaway. (Wisdom With Needle and Thread) The prize was a beautiful needlekeep...and it arrived just in time for me to slip it into my little stitching tin that I took on the plane! Here's the wonderful needlekeep that Kim made...
It was perfect for my trip...thank you Kim, I love it!
And speaking of my trip, here's one last picture (I don't want to bore you all!) This is my favourite castle...
....the beautiful Eilean Donan castle.
I'll be putting some more pictures up on my Facebook page, so if anyone wants to see more of Scotland, just head over to Facebook and friend request me!
And I almost forgot to mention that Miss LindaLee is having a surprise giveaway on her blog - so hop on over to sign up!
And now it's time to head back to the drawing board and get some new designs done!
Until next time...happy stitching!.
