Still no dyeing

But I have got out the dye, the fabric and the pipes for the arashi. Wensleydale is out governing tomorrow [despite having ‘retired’ from it before Christmas] so I intend to spend the day dyeing. I have done some sewing today but it is not in a fit state to show yet.

I have pondered on what to do for the daily photo this month. I have noticed that Wil and Kelly have been showing alphabets, so I decided to join in, although I am not part of the group which is doing this.

I started this alphabet at least 5 years ago – before C&G and a looong time before Babybel – and never finished it. I came across it the other day and decided it would be nice to finish it and make a hanging for Babybel. IMG_6772

The idea was that the letter would illustrate a needlework process beginning with that letter – and have an appropriate illustration. So here we have A for appliqué – and apples.

I think one of the reasons I stopped was I began to realise that some letters were going to be difficult …

So true. We created a database in the Surfacing group which is doing the alphabet challenge and some characters simply have way more options than others. But I managed to create all 26 of them.
