This was great fun, and really quick to make. Its nice to have a break from hand sewing, even though I don't always get on with my machine!!

I have started one of the bead work kits, and so far its all going to plan, its working out to be very easy, and is just as pretty as I hoped.
To give myself a break from leaves I have started the border on the cross work peacock, what you many not be able to see is the gold thread which works very well to lift the design. Once the border is finished in this section I can roll on to the next bit, and the border across the top.

I got the funky chicken pinny, for my daughter, and the doll with a lime green dress, can't wait to get started on them, what a trip down memory lane. Long live Clothkits!!!

You can also see just how many metal thread ends I had to sew in at the back, luckily I have just the needle for the job, its a small curved needle, I only have one, so take great care of it.
