Pooh And Friends update


Hi every one, hope you're all having a lovely stitchy weekend :)
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my peacock.

Here is an update on winnie the pooh latch hook

pooh latch hook rug,

This rug is pretty big 20in by 28in
don't know what that is in cm..I'm old school hahaha
as you can see I'm working right to left, if you're fully left handed you would work left to right,
I also prefer to work vertically rather than horizontal but that's a matter of choice, as long as you work left or right depending on what hand you favour you will be comfortable with your work.

The other thing I do is separate all the wool before I start.
when you get a kit it comes like this 


with all the wool mixed together, this one is from the teddy cushion and there are about 12 of these!
I don't know why they do this, but, anyway, I spend time separating all the colors and put them into sandwich bags, like this


Winnie the pooh wool in sandwhich bags
it makes it so much easier than trying to separate those wool sushi things as you go
lol

Happy Stitching
:))

  2. I am loving your Winnie the Pooh. I like the idea of separating the yarn wool. I think that taking the time in the beginning helps you make progress day to day faster.

  5. Hi dear Summer , :)) oooohhhhh yes , just look at the plushness of this wonderful creation , does it not just sing of barefoot summer days and picnic sandwiches in the meadows to you dear lady :))) love it , love it , love it hahahaha . Ones reminded of how my late mother and the village women would make latch hook rugs from old garments , heavy dark tuft cotton made the best kitchen ones , they lasted years and they weighed a ton being some 6 feet by 4 feet in old money ( 184 by 122 cm in new ) hahahahaha , and thats 20 by 28 inch ( 51 by 72 cm ) for the old school present hahahahaha , its a wise pre-thought to separate the various colours of wool in advance dear Summer , preparation is EVERYTHING in ALL things dear lady and the sign of an organised mind , love the variation of craft you share here dear Summer , so love walking through the ya blog door , ya never know if its gonna be... chocolate chip cookies or victoria sponge with ya cuppa ..but what ever ya share you know its gonna be shared with a smile and a warming heart wonderful share dearest Summer , cannot await its beautiful rainbow coloured finale , as always dearest Summer my respects , Ban :)))))))
