I have started on a couple of stitched samples, although I have got very little done this month. However I set myself to post at least once a month and that only leaves today for April.

One of the reasons for the lack of progress is that I "gronked" my machine (my term, not the repair man's!) and I found very little got done with out it. I am no longer much of a hand stitcher I am afraid.

Although my machine is now fixed and fine I have bought a new all singing all dancing machine - it took much discussion and agonising but to hell with the credit crunch! there are some advantages to being 50!
1.6.1 I chose to work with cold water dyes as I think I will use natural fabrics for my first assessment piece. However I did get hold of some disperse dyes and have a go with them.
