My creative space


I've procrastinated beyond belief about starting this. I bought the supplies way back when, borrowed books, but only now have I put floss to linen. I've unpicked several imperfections and re-threaded the needle countless times and come back to find my non permanent ink doing it's job far too well. In spite of all that I'm liking this embroidery thing.

I just know this is going to be ace. Bunting in all it's form just IS. I found a gorgeous embroidered bunting linen on Etsy the other day & fell in love, what a happy, bright project.

Can't wait to see your end result! I've recently started doing a bit of embroidery too, it's so much fun!! I'm trying to make a border for a dress, takes forever though...

Yay! hellooo!! It feels like so long since I've visited but I'm hoping to get up to speed again! Thanks to my new iphone I can keep up to date a little better!
So cool that you've started doing embroidery, it's ages since I've done any but it's pretty relaxing. Looking fprward to seeing the end results!

so lovely to see what you are making. Embroidery is a love of mine, one I do not do very often.
