Many Moons Ago

Many Moons ago
(approximately 444 )
I did a lot of embroidery.

I stitched kits of Victorian Children in various scenes.

The first three scenes were, "At the seaside", "At the Station" and "Feeding the Ducks."

My Mum has the first three but I gave the fourth away to the mum of my current boyfriend at the time as a Christmas present. It resides somewhere in France now, who knows as I said that was many moons ago!

My Mum was always sad that I'd given the fourth, "Picnic Time" away but I must have bought the kit again sometime in the distant past as it has been sitting waiting for such a time as this.

So my project for this month, or however long it takes, is to stitch it again.

The kit comprises of a printed design on a background of hessian fabric. A printed chart of what colour/stitch goes where, all the cotton threads required, 2 needles and a stitch glossary.

That ought to keep me busy for a while.
