It’s half term, so it’s all a rush. Without too much gubbins I’ll share what I’ve been up to over the last few week.
Husband got a Valentine’s card, my Mum got a birthday card. Both quick, easy and fun to do yet very effective, I think. Inspired by The Messy Brunette and her post about Valentines.
I made a couple of doilies with the cheap Drops cotton I bought. Cheap for a reason. VERY splitty. But I wasn’t expecting it to be amazing at 80p a ball.
The first one is the better of the two but neither are great. Not dainty in the slightest and I think they’ll just get hidden away rather than used. I found a diagram pattern on pinterest that I used. And I only went and blocked something!! I usually try to avoid it but here, there was no escaping it this time.
I completed my hyacinth embroidery. I can’t find the time to do anything with the flowery embroidery things I’ve been doing. Maybe next week.
Crocheting instead of perservering with my knitting. I love crochet.
Buying cotton. I can go through so much embroidery thread. Hopefully this is the answer. Bought from Ebay for less than £25! 50 flippin balls!
It wasn’t in any kind of colour order so I’ve been playing with the way they live together.
I’m more excited than I should be about some cotton.
Look at the beautious bounty of awesomeness!
It was bought with Christmas money, I still got a mild telling off for buying more craft crap. It has nowhere to go.
