Not bloody much.
I did get this done, and I think its rather pretty. You don't want to know how many hours that took! Lets just say that 65% of those were incredibly knotty. And I have never figured out how to take a thingy of thread, find the end, pull, and not turn it into a birds nest. (Precisely why I'm putting them all on cards).
And I did get my other sweary stitching done, and I think its pretty too.
Not an original idea I must point out, I saw it HERE on flickr first, by shootcoward.
Its a pressie for a mate of mine. A very awesome mate of mine. For why? Example.
In the run up to Christmas just past, she got to go to a gig by someone we were both positively loopy about when we were teens. I would have absolutely LOVED to have been there. So when she was there, and she got to go back stage, she actually thought of me. She got me a signed Merry Christmas from them! How freakin awesome was that?!
Anyway. I keep my fingers crossed that tomorrow I'll be awake and get back to some quilty sewing. Meantime, just in case, please leave a helpful comment -
"Sarah, next time you've done f*** all but sleep and stab yourself with needles every time you attempt to sew for days, why not entertain us by telling us . . (insert suggestions here). . . ."
