I sat down yesterday afternoon eager to start stitching on my new project. This was to be a 'no thinking' project, one where instead of having to come up with a design and decide on stitch choices colours etc, I would simply follow the instructions to the letter and enjoy the actual process of embroidery, free from having to make any decisions. Great idea in theory, but as I discovered very quickly, that while the kit comes with a very helpful digram detailing which colour and stitch to use where, it doesn't actually have any stitch diagrams or a 'how to' section!
HERE should you wish to have a go. I might try it one day, but for now I think I will just accept that my thistle will look nothing like the original :) I am really enjoying working the design and am more than happy to change stitches if they don't suit me, I see next up are bullion knots one of my least favourites - french knots anyone?
