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. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

Embroidery - Week 5

I have made a good start with the "Picnic Time" Kit.

I did a search on the computer to see if this kit (P751) still exists but couldn't find it anywhere.

It is by Penelope of Wm Briggs & Co. Ltd. originally of Bolton Lancs. UK. which seems to relate to Coats now!

I started with my next largest hoop which is 6" (seem to have 2 of those) but needed to keep moving it so did a bit without a hoop. By Wednesday I decided to take my colour wheel piece out of my only 10" hoop and stretch it properly. I edged it with black braid.

I keep forgetting to photograph "Picnic Time" each day, probably because I am doing it downstairs in the sunshine of the conservatory and tend to put it away when the light fades, hence I forget to take a photo!

Anyway here are a few days work up until Saturday evening (above).
