However Spring is poking it's head up with the daffodils and crocuses. I have especially been 'feeling it' in my sewing.
The last few weeks I have been embroidering the Daisychain Sampler pattern from Alicia Paulson's Rosy Little Things shop. I an sewing it in floss rather than crewel and I have been loving it, finding it remarkably soothing and one of the most enjoyable things I have ever made. I realise as time goes on my true crafting love is hand sewing. Something I began to learn/feel as I was sewing hex after hex together. I haven't really tackled embroidery much before, a wee bitty here and there and a dip of the toes in some cross stitch, although I discovered I'm not keen on that. This is my first real foray into such a varying amount of stitches.
Take a looksee...
My cool wee Loftus on the Hipstamatic and north facing window are not doing the colours justice so 'here's one I took earlier'...
I made this wee house for my Kindle too, copying some of the flower designs from the above pattern and adding a bumblebee and sunny buttons.
I put wadding it it for protection and am glad I made one myself but I never enjoy using a sewing machine as much as I continually think I am going to.
No doubt I'll make an Autumn/Winter house for it too. Love my Kindle. Much easier to stroke cats whilst reading...
I cannot leave without a photo of cake, too pretty to leave out.
Take care, my lovelies.
