We are having an unexpected weekend at home, after packing the car at 9am this morning, and setting off for the Lake District to visit grandparents, we had to turn back, just 10 miles from home as Lucy threw up! So, being a person who tries hard to always look on the bright side, I've spent the rest of the day doing all those little, lingering jobs round the house that I never get round to doing. My tupperware cupboard is tidy, and Lucy's bedroom curtains now hang how they are supposed to. This evenings job will be to make a start on the only 2 christmas presents I'm making this year, so it's a good job I got in a little flower practice earlier this week!
I'm actually really looking forward to these projects. The flowers are totally made by hand...,
I love hand embroidery, there is something utterly fascinating about the way a needle and thread can turn a small amount of fabric and felt into something really special. Not only that, it is both relaxing and theraputic to complete.
Which part of your crafting do you enjoy the most?
