I started stitching on the LHN Coffee at the weekend – this is a SAL that I'm doing along with Carole following the shopathon that I reported on a little while ago (I think we'll have to do it again, it was good fun!). I had wanted to get all of the word stitched but my eyes were demanding some that I close them last night – we had a busy day out at a bowling competition and a football match. Otherwise, I'm pleased with the progress I managed to make and it's a very enjoyable stitch – I'm looking forward to stitching the friends taking coffee together this week 🙂
I'm using the recommended threads and some lovely fabric that I had sitting in my stash from a previous (still underway!) project – Vintage Country Mocha.
Last week I did quite a bit of stitching on my GFG flowers - I made 11 and started to put the outer rings on. I've dragged this project out for quite a while now and I would like to get some serious progress made on it – wrist/elbow permitting – I need to move onto machine stitching this week to give them a rest.
I had been going to surround all of the flowers with the blue fabric but last week I happened across some of the plain green and plain rust coloured fabric and decided that it would look better with more than just the blue colour so I'm awaiting the arrival of these fabrics so that I can print up some hexagons and try them out. It was a lucky find I think as it's quite some time since Harvest Home was first released. Whatever is leftover I intend to use to piece the back of the quilt.
