Of course, this doesn’t mean huge amounts of progress as the type of work I do is slow. Very slow, but as the last post shows, when I try and do quick work, I don’t like the results, so it is back to slow and, hopefully, metaphorically if not in money terms, much more profitable.

I’ve also been getting advice, which is... interesting. When I put the piece at the top up on the wall, one of the kids suggested to improve it to add a row of pre programmed stitched elephants. The second said add more colour (it is meant to be muted). I haven’t dared ask the third. On the other hand, I felt that their choice of colours of threads for this hand stitched piece were more useful and I have gone with them.
