We were packing to move house when this box arrived and try as I might I wasn’t relaxed enough to enjoy stitching this. I found the fabrics very hard to handle. I finished the box this week.
Part one was darning- making holes and repairing them. I quite like darning so had been looking forward to this project.
It’s adequate, but I’m not thrilled with it.
The second part of the box was to unravel some sari silk and piece togther with running stitch. Now I had been really looking forward to this – I love taking fabric scraps and joining them with stitch. But once again I wasn’t happy. The scraps were minute and very very frayed. Now frayed edges are again something I normally love but these drove me crazy, added to which I wasn’t that keen on the colours.
All I can say is I did my best, and I’ll put it down to house moving stress. I now have three more boxes to tackle and hope I enjoy them more.
