It’s about as offensive as a chicken vol-au-vent. May 29, 2011

Week 5 and 95 rows down, making me almost half way up the original chart I found on Ravelry. As I am planning on adding the roof and the light (or the atmospheric exciter, if you prefer), I think I am really only a third of the way through.

I have, however, recently become aware of the existence of soluble aida which has relieved all my anxieties about the door plaque and Police Box sign.  The creation of these was hanging over me as something I wanted to do well but with no notion of how I was going to pull it off.  Now I have a plan and I am quite looking forward to getting there.  Still pondering the St John’s Ambulance badge though.  That is going to be tricky.

I had overcome its tendency to curl with pins. I can see a border is going to be a necessity.

  1. The St. Johns Ambulance sign could be made by printing it out on to special paper (i.e. make your own T-shirt paper) and ironing onto a piece of white fabric which you could cut out and sew on.

    I think that will be my back-up plan but I *think* I might be able to crochet and embroider it if I put my mind to it. I keep fiddling about with patterns as it is really only two circles and a Maltese cross so shouldn’t be too hard when I get my head round it properly.
