Now that I’ve finished knitting both of the scarves I’ve got a new project on the go, this time for the house.
We’ve been on the look out for a sign for the bar for a while, and had been looking at the illuminated light bulb letters that are everywhere at the moment, but they’re so expensive, and as we’re on a bit of a budget I came up with an alternative. . . an embroidered sign.
It was originally meant to be a Valentine’s present for Jason, but it’s taking a little longer than expected so I’ve taught him the basics and enlisted some help in an effort to get it finished (hopefully by the end of February)!
I’d seen on a recent shopping trip some plastic canvases that you use for tapestry or cross stitch, and I’ve been wanting to use them on a project for a while. I got some Anchor tapestry wool in some shades to match different bits in the lounge, and used these to embroider the letters.
I bought the patterns for the letters from Little House Bliss on Etsy and so far its all going well. This was progress after a few days . . .
