Work in Progress Wednesday
The most energetic sharon b over at Pin Tangle runs a Work in Progress Wednesdays, to inspire slow coaches like me to get a wriggle on - so I have decided to post my world-record attempt.
This WIVSP (Work in VERY Slow Progress) was started by my Mother in 1947 as an embroidered supper cloth, which she never finished. I had a go at it in the 1980s, but my embroidery was obviously so unlike hers, that there was no point.
So I have been allowed to cut it up, and "re-birth" it as a wall hanging. Two blocks are totally finished, and four are almost finished - I just need to do the second pass on the Blanket Stitch around the edging.
(The purple purse on the corner is the WIP for next Wednesday - may as well plan ahead.)
This week I have finished Block 9, below. Blocks seven and eight still await however, as do Blocks ten and twelve - why do anything in order?
This is Block 9 - you can see the whole lot HERE, and find some of the stitch combinations in the sets HERE.
