About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. I go to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

Embroidery - Week 2

Done loads this week.

Monday I stamped a couple of dragon flies and started my purple with them.

Tuesday I decided to use metallic thread but it took an age!
Wednesday reverted to cotton thread.

Thursday thought I'd fill the remaining space with a sun in the various colours of the colour wheel left, using ribbons and a padded appliqué sun. I did LOADS of the rays in the ribbons and stitches.

Friday went geocaching so only added a few rays in the pink.

Saturday more rays...

Sunday and a couple of die cut appliquéd butterflies.

I have a few spaces to fill but expect it will be done by next week.

Now what am I going to do for the rest of the year of stitches? Perhaps I'll get back to my scrapbooking instead, especially as my right thumb is aching.
