Progress is being made on H&F SAL if slow. My main progress is on Purple Calico, I've got a black box frame from Ikea and my friendly framer cut a mount for me and I've padded and pinned the fabric ready for lacing. Then he is going to make a window mount for me and that will have fabric stretched onto it and more stitching placed over the mount. This will give an even greater 3D effect to the piece. My it was a long time ago that I made this piece and I'm only getting round to finishing it off now!

The rest of my Really Useful boxes arrived yesterday and I did more thread and fabric sorting yesterday afternoon. Getting there slowly!



and more fabric

Big Grin, girls, thanks for your comments, sorry Lynne but it takes all my time doing mine. It hasn't been sorted for over a year, I've never been so organized before. The variety of different plastic and cardboard boxes and carrier bags was the norm!

Purple Calico is stunning & your plans for framing sound great - can't wait to see it. Now that's organised! Fancy sorting my stash when you've done? LOL :0)
