Much Happier!


I started stitching my design for my pincushion belt (as mentioned in previous post) on Saturday, but I wasn't at all happy with my thread colours and unpicked so many times...and thought the best thing to do was to just put it aside. As I had planned to visit Mum today, I decided to take it with me, so pleased I did as my sister also came and suggested that I stich a contrast colour next to the already stitched yellow centre. It makes the centres stand out so much more now and I am so much happier with it! The colours arn't quite true in this pic, the threads have came out a bit darker than they actually are.



Still lots more stitching to do on this one as it's nearly 15 inches long! I did have a couple of pictures but I have learnt that if you press the delete button one too many times, you will delete photos! lol!

I hope you are all enjoying your week!

The thread colours are lovely, the brown near the yellow looks really pretty. This will be a great project, can't wait to see more.
