I made a little something for my best friend. She lives in a rural area in Wales and loves getting post so I thought it would be nice for her to get a little present in the postbox.
She has to walk quite a distance to get her post from their postbox so it's nice if there's something waiting for her in there! :-) It's not 100% perfect as I'm still quite new to sewing but I think I'm definitely improving the more I practise on the sewing machine.
I would definitely miss my sewing machine a Lot if it was taken away from me now.. Crochet used to be my favourite craft, now knitting and sewing have both taken over and I love them just as much as one another. I still love crochet though,
It's mums birthday today and as well as giving her a lovely knitting pattern book and a ball of Noro yarn, I made her this embroidery hoop art.
I haven't done a lot of embroidery before so it was all very 'make it up as you go along...'.
The stitches Definitely aren't perfect but I think it turned out quite nicely... and anyway, she's my Mum so she has to like everything I make her! :-)
Happy Birthday Mum xXx
I'm busy knitting at the moment... A lovely lady has asked me to knit her two tea cosies similar to my one. I can't believe it, I've almost sold my first items! haha.. So easily pleased...
