Just completed the sewing together of the second panel for our “A Stitch in Time’ project at Innerpeffray Library.The ‘Alphabet’ panel is being much admired and the second panel will be going on display in the library by the end of this week. The jolly stitchers are already busy with the third panel which will be all about ‘Women in the library’.
Seona and I are about to begin stitching the fourth panel and just the two of us will work that, as it is going to be quite challenging. This will be the ‘Borrowers Register’ panel – just one large piece of fabric and lots of dates, names, books borrowed etc etc between 1747 to 1968, when the library ceased to lend books and became a ‘museum’.
It is great to have new stitchers, who are complete novices and learning as they sew, joining the contributors
