Off Piste…

I said I would pop in and write about some recent makes…so here I am, I hope you are well.  My makes of late have been a little off piste, in that they are not yarny at all!  

Over Easter I had a little time away from work which was just delightful.  The weather was sunny and spring was most definitely flourishing.  The boys were off school too, so our days were lazy and quite carefree.  Amongst the laid back ways, I still had chores and it was whilst ironing of all things that I was overwhelmed with an urge to embroider. 

The urge just fell so heavy upon me whilst ironing an old but beloved blouse of mine.   The material had become thinned in areas and I sadly decided the blouse could no longer be worn.  I loved that blouse and some of the material was still good and this is what sparked my embroidery urge. 

Having never done any embroidery before I happily abandoned the ironing pile and exchanged it for a pinterest exploration and I was gone for several hours.  I gathered supplies and with a fabric sewing pen I sketched out my design.  Between consulting youtube clips and pinterest I ventured on my maiden embroidery voyage.  I loved it, it scratched that creative itch so well, I felt so deeply satisfied. 

I can only show you a little of this make as it is a gift and is still to be gifted. 

I embroidered at every opportunity, I just couldn’t put it down.

I made a second hoop which I can show you, as this has already been gifted.

Oh, how I adore French knots and satin stitching. What do you think?
