This year I have made a list of all those little things I wanted to make that I didn't get around to making last year, so I can strike these two off my list. The last time I did embroidery I think I was 8 years old and I know my eyesight was a lot better. (that makes me sound old!) I forgot how precise you need to be with your stitches , one wrong stitch and you have to start all over again. Here is a close up:
The pattern is ofcourse by the very talented Aneela Hooey
I really enjoyed the process and I would love to tackle the ABC sampler that I saw so much last year. It looks like the perfect project to make whilst watching the t.v.
Another little project I have finally completed is this lovely little lamb, taken from the book I love patchwork.
If you are in the U.K and would like to either have a go at making this lamb, or use the fleece for another project I have about a yard of sherpa fleece left which I am happy to sell for £10 (postage included) so please leave me a message on this post if you are interested.
