I finished the sparrow embroidery today and another piece called Tea Sutra that I have been wondering how to finish for a while. I am glad to get them finished today as I am going to Swansea to visit my mum on Tuesday and James (my husband) and I have a little tradition that we spend the day before either of us goes away, together. So this is just a little post to say that I will be away for a week :) Have a fun week, whatever you are doing!
I have nearly finished the sparrow embroidery. I am going to burn round the edges and then apply it to an artists canvas, so that should be interesting! If it all works, there will be a better photo! Let's see what happens!
I started a new embroidery yesterday, the background is teabags on an artists canvas, with scrim, bark and pressed flowers. It is really hard to get a good photo. Sorry.
There will be a sparrow embroidery in the centre. (Thanks Mum for helping with the design!) I will do some more this evening, but James needs the internet later, so I am posting it now!
I sold my wren embroidery yesterday, so here it is packed and ready for its new home....
Look what Nicky has made! Shirley sheep! (Well maybe she has a different name for him/her) It is always nice to see what people have made with my patterns. Well done Nicky!!!!
Right, off to do some more on my sparrow now, I hope to have more pictures to show you soon! :)
As you may know, I have been struggling with my embroidery for years now. For the last few weeks, I think I am getting my confidence back and finding what I like to make. Hopefully I will be posting here and letting you know what is going on!
I have added several new pictures to the embroidery page. I have restarted my Twitter account today (click at the top right of the screen) and I have been making cards..... that should do for one day!
I have made a Tumblr account and so I will be posting updates there instead. Feel free to follow me :) here
We are settling in well into our new house (I will take pictures as soon as I can) but we have been ill over the last week or so and so things are not coming on as fast as they might, but never mind. We have had lots of wood delivered to the house for our open fire which is roaring away nicely and we are slowly sorting all the jobs that need doing and catching up on all the things we have missed over the last 3 weeks. I will let you know what is going on in more detail in the next few days, but I need to find my brain first!
This is a picture I was sent by lovely Isabelle who is making these mice for her family. Thank you Isabelle, it is lovely to see what people are making with the patterns.
Feel free to send pictures of your finished projects :)
It is official, we are moving on Monday! The house is in chaos and there will be no internet for the fist 2 1/2 weeks, but we are off!
There will not be much happening on the website, but hopefully soon there will be lots of new things to see including video tutorials on crochet, cards and embroidery.
Thank you for your patience in advance :) and next time I write, we will live in Newcastle! We have not been to the house, but this is what we have been promised....
This is what we have at the moment..... I can't wait!
I have decided to not carry on with the Green Monster Mondays for the same reason as before (I am rushing to get the pattern done and I am not doing my best work) I will instead with any luck be adding more crafts to the site and uploading tutorial videos onto Youtube when I have something to show. I will still be making the crochet patterns, so don't worry, but I will be adding cards and embroidery to the site as well.
I added the Cute Cat pattern to the website today :)
We are STILL waiting to hear about moving house (it has been about 6 months now!) but we might be exchanging contracts today to move a week today (Monday), but who knows!
I will keep you informed of what is going on, and if you would like to know when the crochet patterns are going up, please let me know and I will contact you (I will not send you anything else, don't worry!)
The cow is coming on well. I was hoping she would be ready by now, but it is always last minute with me :( She will be up on Monday as the Green Monster Monday pattern
