Lately, I have been inspired by nature and in particular, ways of stitching leaves,
(which is your favorite?, from left to right there's darning stitch, open satin stitch, and fly stitch, I love the woven darning stitch)
the embroidery, which I just had to try out, came from this book.
Then there's always old faithful, leaves involving a bit of felt applique,
and next, it's time to add some leaves to this rose.
The snow has now inspired me to put the heating on constant,
I'm freezing here, I may even get under the duvet and do a bit of sewing till it's time for the school run!
And talking of nature, I think (fingers crossed) I managed to purchase one of these on Friday. Oh the excitement, how on earth am I going to be able to part with it for valentines day?!!
