I have been caught up with business matters since last week and sewing is taking a back seat for a while. Having said that the sewing was driving me up the wall!! I just couldn't work out the stitching sequence for the border I was stitching in 'Outrum' design which is a design in Wessex Stitchery. I have it worked out now, after a lot of restarting and just need to keep repeating the pattern. It is nearly the end of the month so I need to get a wriggle on. I find this kind of stitching just like most computer games. It is all in working out the sequence.
I am using a 32 count linen and I strand of a DMC multi shade thread. (I still don't have proper glasses only the magnifiers.)
There hasn't been a lot of progress on the quilt either. I just couldn't get the hang of the rulers so have put them aside. The quilt has 3 borders which increase in size. I have free machine quilted the 2 inner ones with a random star pattern and then measured out the outer border to be stitched in a large diamond pattern using my walking foot. I'm still thinking what I will do with the rest of it.
My bobbin has just run out so it is time for a tea break.
