So as I was wandering round my local craft store I spotted this little kit and decided to try something a bit different and expand my crafting skills....
....it's a Bucilla embroidery kit and the colours really caught my eye. It's printed on a denim fabric and uses some basic embroidery stitches, some of which I'm familiar with and others that I have had to learn. Luckily for me, the Internet is a crafter's delight and good old google always come to the rescue :)
This has taken me wayyyy longer than I had anticipated, partly because I haven't done some of the stitches before and also due to the fact that I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so I have been doing quite a bit of frogging to get the stitches to look he way that I want them to.
So this first attempt at embroidery is far from perfect, but it is enjoyable and since I already own
Don't worry, cross stitching hasn't been abandoned.....I managed to finish off the rose design that I posted about last week. Now I have another gorgeous little card to add to my stash...
....isn't that pretty?
Hope you have a wonderfully creative and productive week.
Until next time....happy stitching!
