Yes it's time to show my little ORT jar for May..... where does the time go? Here it is..
Shall I ever see this jar full? The pinky threads on the top are Dinky Dyes silk, lovely thread to stitch with. I'm using it on FS Dawn of Spring SAL designed by Mouse (see link to her blog at the side). I've just finished part 3 which included some drawn thread work and bullion knots. So I'm getting to do stitches I haven't tried before. Can't wait for June and the next part to arrive. Here's my progress so far..
I may have to take out the left hand side spider rose.... it's too high, didn't notice until I saw this photo, and some of the bullion knot leaves are a bit wayward. I do hate it when I know its not right!!
Not much work done this month on my Mary Wigham sampler, because I have started something new.
Rug hooking!! Take a look at http://gnomes-home.blogspot.co.uk/ for Barb's tutorials.
Here's my starting kit, isn't that wool a gorgeous colour.
and how far I have got..
I'll leave you with a photo of my Clivia, it has 5 flower heads on which I haven't seen before, usually 2 or 3 at most. It obviously likes being where it is, and had a good winter. I think the secret is to keep them cool in winter, and it goes outside for the summer.
