It's the first Saturday of the month and it's time for YOTA (go here to read more). This is a fun and relaxed SAL to encourage those participating to work on some of our Unfinished Objects.
My focus for YOTA last month was Lanarte's Clocks, and here is where I left off...
I wasn't sure whether to carry on as I was getting fed up with all the browns, beiges and creams but I kept stitching away little by little this month and this is where I am now!
I'm so pleased with my progress. I stitched the mantel clock at the bottom right, all of the border, and made a good start on the grandfather clock which runs down the left hand side. I'm hoping a finish is achievable by the next YOTA update on April 4th.
Not much cross stitching has been going on here because I have been busy making a Fantastic Mr Fox mask for World Book Day which as parents throughout the UK (or maybe the world?!) will know, was this Thursday. I wouldn't normally put a photo of my children on here but in this case I think it's safe to let you see elder son in his "disguise"...
It was hats or masks only this year. I decided to make a mask from felt using this pattern from OxEyeDaisey on etsy. I was really pleased with it, the instructions were easy to follow and I think my mask looks similar to the project picture, at least from a distance. It's not perfect but elder son loved it and it was comfortable to wear which is a priority for a 6-year old!
Younger son went as Harry Potter so no photos there. He wore a pair of round glasses and I drew a lightning scar on his forehead with red gel pen. Simple but effective.
Now my embroidery adventures are over I'm hoping to get back to my first love, cross stitch, so hopefully I will have some real progress to show you soon!
Until next time
