An important flower part 1 complete


Everything went so smoothly yesterday, all the baking was done by 11 o'clock. Even the ironing was done and washing done.
This left me clear to finish part one of "an important flower". The next part is released in April, so this will go away for a few weeks.
Today I will get to the library and get Alla Turca printed out and hopefully do that this week.
I have got a list of projects to do. I did the fatal thing of looking through a couple of magazines and found things to do.
I have one more item to stitch and finish for the food and drink exchange this month so that will be a priority. I want to cross stitch some banding to finish some shelf edging in the kitchen and do a honeysuckle cushion for my bedroom.
One good thing came from the magazine browsing, I have got a template and instructions for a stitched envelope(needed for an exchange next month). I have also seen a pattern for a table cloth to embroider. I just have to decide if I will do this from scratch, complete with scalloped edging, or buy a ready made plain tablecloth stitch.
I think these two magazines will keep me busy for some time.

You have been productive. this crossstitch is very interesting - one colour work can be very eyecatching.
