A tad dramatic I know but in all honesty, this is my nemesis -
I purchased this at the Hobbycraft & Creative Stitches Show at the SECC back in (blushes) October 2011. I figured I would have it done for Christmas, and didn’t really take in the scale of the demo cushion on display, instead falling in love with that heart shaped O with the Union Jack pattern.
I started it when I got home that night, then Christmas hit and my order book went nuts, so it was popped into my pink polkadot bag beside my sofa ready to stitch when I had a spare few minutes. It came out again when we went to Center Parcs in January and I did a little right before I fell ill.
Since then, it’s sat in the polkadot bag, beside the sofa, waiting to be stitched.
At the weekend, I re-discoverd it and decided that I MUST have this in San Francisco with me – completed. I’m not going to be able to do it on the plane as I can’t take the needle or scissors required on with me, instead I have to have it finished and ready to go.
To motivate me, I’ve decided to take a picture of it on the 1st of each month, and pop it up here. That way, I can see progress which will (hopefully) motivate me to do a little more.
So here it is – the result of about 10 hours of stitching so far, close up.
I kid you not, 10 hours. This is going to take me ages…..
