There’s a feeling you get when you’ve rediscovered a craft or hobby you’ve not touched for ages, maybe years.
Suddenly you can loose hours (again) on Pinterest, pinning all the things you want to make (copy).
You start filling an unreasonably large basket on Amazon/Hobbycraft without much thought as to exactly how many spare hours you have at your disposal.
I have a medium sized stash of yarn. I have a greater stash of fabric. I don’t (really) need a stash of something else.
With my stitching improving, becoming smaller, neater and more consistent, I have a need to embellish every day things with embroidery. Do you think I can mange to embroider 8 linen napkins for my Mother’s birthday on 8th February? Probably not.
I have in mind
linen embroidered pouches for keeping my jewelry separate
a couple of matching embroidered cushions
an embellished linen table runner
an embroidered glasses case
embroidered napkins for all my girlfriends birthdays this year
a whole wall of the downstairs loo covered in embroidery samples
To add to my old Quality Street tin full of embroidery skeins odds and ends I’ve just ordered a job lot of 36 DMC skeins and an embroidery hoop stand that you sit on! Hopefully I’ll find some linen in my stash.
Love, Lucie xx
