I am starting to get on top of the lack of thyroxine in my system but find I am still having trouble thinking and reasoning. I am just going to have to wait for the levels to normalise. In the meanwhile I have to stop trying to do things like I am normal, like joining my patchwork group on-line! All I managed there was to throw everything into a mess. I did realise the problem when I joined the TextileArtist.org community stitch challenge 2020, and have only now started to do the exercises. I have lost nearly a month and am way behind. There have been four fantastic sessions with great instructor.s
Sue Stone, Cas Holmes, Emily Tull and Richard Mc Vetis to date. There are now over 60,000 members in this group.
So this was the week one challenge exercise from Sue Stone.
I decided to use Sydd Tofs stitch ,which I saw on Queenie's Sunday Stitch School
I started with the traditional stitch using Appleton's crewel wool but then started to play around with different threads, direction and spacing.
This little stitch shows lots of potential.
