Could not make up my mind what to do but I needed a new book mark so made one using this stitch. The 18ct canvas I painted and then stitched the bonnet stitch with Oliver Twists medium perle in a bluey greeny colour, I added some straight stitching in a pale green the backed it with some dyed poly cotton.Very much a rush job I am afraid, time does not seem to be on my side at the moment, should have plenty of time for stitching as it most definitely is not gardening weather as it is so wet.
You could say if saves me from boredom!
I am also having a go at needle tatting have given up ever conquering the shuttle, with the needle if you go wrong it just unravels, have been going wrong quite a bit but will get there one day, it is quite relaxing like crocheting so good to do in the evening when tired and the light not good enough for stitching.
Think that is enough for now, let me just add how good it is to get the feedback from you all and thanks for taking the time.
