I've been having a busy week, working on two projects. The first is a Mariner's compass wall hanging which will go in the entrance hall of my husbands workplace. I chose the Mariner's compass block because Billy's company is in the communications/navigation business.
2 done - 3 to go!
The next project - I offered to do as a gift for a colleague of my husband, to commemorate his 22 years in the Royal Marines.
The first dagger I did was not up to scratch - so I had to do it all again.
The blade was not sitting on the handle properly and the only black stranded cotton I could find was this horrible wirey stuff. Nasty!
Second attempt faired much better and I was able to start the goldwork lettering. I will search for some ordinary black stranded cotton this weekend.
Coming on nicely now - once it is done it will be off to the frame shop.
I think a tarnished gold frame will finish it off perfectly.
I will come back with more photos when it is done.
Til the next time, happy sewing everyone.
