Another Crazy Patch

I have done a bit of cross stitch today, but not enough to post a picture of the progress. Was quite nice to do something that was within my comfort zone after yesterday.

However, I do have another patch prepared for next weeks stitch, and it is miles better than last weeks attempt.

D drew out the pattern for me on paper. I would have shown you, but I have accidentally deleted the picture. I numbered the pieces and this time, remembered to take a picture for reference before I cut it into individual parts.

The pattern pieces were pinned to the fabric, cut out and then pinned and machined stitched together in the correct order. Having the picture for reference certainly made the process a lot quicker and less stressful.

Now I can't wait until Tuesday to see what stitch we will be playing with.

Just a quick thank you to all of you that have commented, it has been very much appreciated. It is great to know there are people around that are able to give encouragement and help as required. Thank you

I've only had one attempt at crazy patchwork/quilting. Wondering why you have to wait till Tuesday to embellish it? The colours of your fabric do go well together.

I am using these patches for my Take a Stitch on Tuesday challenge on Stichin Fingers, hence the the wait until Tuesday

this square looks interesting--so you plan to embellish it with crazy quilt type stitches?
