....I'm almost done, just finishing off the back stitching and the french knots!
Those pesky marks from the hoop should be banished when the iron makes its appearance. I would normally wash my stitching when it's finished, but with all that deep red, I'm really reluctant to wash it in case I end up with pink fabric! Let's hope that the iron alone can vanquish the hoop marks.
For anyone who's tried to stitch while traveling, you'll know how awkward it is to pull a length of thread from a skein, cut it, and then try to separate it into however many strands you need for your stitching. This was one of my dilemmas for having my stitching stuff organized when I went on holiday. Stitching in the confines of an airplane is not an easy task. Luckily for me, I came across a rather nifty idea on Pinterest. Click here to go to the original post.
Unfortunately I can't show you the inside of this little thread holder as my camera batteries have just died, so now you HAVE to go to the original post!!! :) Anyhoo, it's a cute and easy to make project. It works quite well as long as you have the threads cut to the size you like and already separated into single strands. I'm not sure if this is the best method of storing threads for stitching on the go, so if you have any other methods/ideas, I'd love to hear them!
Until next time...happy stitching!
