I sometimes wonder how I found the time to keep making all these bits of work that I am finding and spent time completing over the past months. For example, the above must have taken ages to create and it would have been in the evenings......now I can bearing focus much after 8pm on something as delicate as the above.
Anyway, I digress. The above is a cross stitch piece on 14 HPI fabric which I am pretty sure was made before Sophie was born! Last weekend I looked at it and thought "you know what.... it is time you became something better".
I am planning my first organised workshop (more on that later) and I was thinking about little items that could be made to learn how to use their sewing machine.
I also had some home grown lavender so I decided that by sewing some cotton fabric on the back and adding the lavender a lovely sachet could be made.
I added a loop of ribbon to one of the corners and it is now hung up in the back of my car. I do not like shop bought car fresheners but this has been in the car for about a week and it is lovely. Again, out of the box and into the wide world for this piece of sewing.
Blue again as well....must work on something with a different colour palette!
Hope you enjoyed the good weather today. It got to 24 degrees which is a little bit too warm for a classroom but it was good to see it in April.
Hope it lasts a little while and comes back in the summer months.
