Finished this today. I really enjoyed the thread (variegated - so nice to be able to stitch with the one thread and not have to keep up with colour changes). It is "Spring Gully" by Cottage Garden Threads and I quite liked it. They have some really lovely colour combos and I picked up a couple at Country Hart when I was in Port Pirie. I'm happy with the two Gail Pan stitcheries I did as a result of my Port Pirie trip. Not sure what I will use them for. This one Gail finished as a wall hanging and the first, smaller one Gail finished as the cover for a block keeper. Maybe I will put them on bags. I really love bags! I have been planning to make some bags, but just haven't gotten that far. (Not very good planning, obviously!) My handbag (one from the shop) is breaking and I always think that handmade, purpose designed handbags are best. I also want to make a bag to take sewing things to classes and sewing day. So, maybe I will use these on bags.
Tomorrow I am planning to really get stuck into the sewing room tidying. I have several million projects on the go (don't we all?) which tends to mean mess. Lots of it. Then of course I have my fabric addiction which means that new things are continually coming into the sewing room. I have sooooo many great fabrics! I am very lucky. I read about other bloggers de-stashing and I always admire them for it, but at the same time can't imagine doing that myself! I guess I am just a hoarder at heart. Whenever I think about controling my stash I think about using it! So after I finish tidying tomorrow I am going to sew, and sew, and sew, for the rest of the week. I have a bunch of projects that I could finish so I guess I will give it a go.
