Despite not having blogged for a while over Christmas, we have both still been keeping busy.
Tom has finally finished the Ehrman Tapestry that has been ongoing for 4 years.
I'm sure you all know what it's like, you start something and them put it away, get it out and do a bit more etc, but he put the final stitches in and is very pleased with the end result.
I'm sure you will agree that it is beautiful and now we have to decide whether to make it into a cushion or a wall hanging.
Take note of how square it is. I don't know how he does this because all of the tapestries that I have made in the past have needed to be blocked. Clever Mr T.
The problem with a cushion is that the full picture is never seen and it gets a bit worn after a while but a wall hanging will remain good for years.
He's now working on one that Tom Grandson bought for him last Christmas and has been waiting for the above to be finished.
I suppose you could say that this one is a bit more masculine than roses, lol
Progress so far.
I have treated myself to a box of plastic snap poppers (it doesn't take much to get me all excited nowadays, a box of poppers or a few balls of wool and I'm thrilled for days, lol)
And made a new glasses case with the first popper for closure.
These cases are easy and quick to make and I can see there will be a few more in the pipeline.
