I have been keeping my fingers busy over the last few weeks after receiving this magnificent book for my birthday. The book has detailed pictures of how to perform anything requiring a needle and the pictures above are of my first effort to try out some of the fancier embroidery stitches.
I'm not entirely sure what the project will result in, perhaps an applique on a t-shirt, a circular cushion or a framed piece. I welcome ideas from any of you clever folks out there!
Again we have been given the gift of stunning weather for the weekend and it is so tempting just to sit in the garden and do nothing/ponder.
