I just finished sewing the felt back on this cross stitch bookmark. I thoroughly enjoyed sewing again and so a friend and I have booked a place on an embroidery course. :-)
Yesterday a courier delivered 14 cross stitch magazines (1 with a free fruit and flowers kit still intact) 4 needlework pattern booklets and 2 hard-backed sewing books – a surprise from a friend who is clearing her spare bedrooms ready for decorating. A fantastic surprise gift!
What a fantastic surprise gift!
Your bookmark is beautiful – love Roses. I can’t cross stitch or embroider for toffee, what you’ve done is so clever. Enjoy the course!
That is beautiful Rachell! I love to cross-stitch, but unfortunately the fine motor skill function it takes, no longer exists in my hands. :( I hope the class goes well. Sounds like it will be a lot of fun!
Very pretty! I love it!
Very pretty and what a fantastic gift to receive!
Thank you. I’m keeping it! ;-)
Very nice… Maybe erm…granny chic? I’m too close to grannydom to appreciate it ;)
It works for Cath Kidson!
Lovely! Would like to try it if you have the design?
This is from a bookmark kit. I can’t remember the make but they’re generally in Hobbycraft and sewing shops (including in Liberty, London if you’re near by.)
