A Little Bit of Stitching
than in the last 3 years!
Which didn't take much doing as I'd not stitched for ages.
This is the latest make - just a little lavender sachet using some Aida band which can also be used for bookmarks and to make cake bands.
I bought a couple of metres of this umpteen years ago and still have enough left for a few more sachets, and a small bit of calico left to make the pouches that hold the dried lavender inside the Aida. But I don't have much dried lavender so must remember to dry some more of my own this summer.
What next? I need some more birthday cards for men, so had a search though my box of charts. I have a box file full of charts mostly pulled from cross stitch magazines years ago and saved from kits bought at boot-sales. Most of my charts are small designs and some have been stitched quite frequently when I was selling cards at the Framlingham Country Market.
This frog has been stitched at least once before, originally a kit from Textile Heritage they don't list the numbers of the colours so I must have matched my DMC threads to the originals when it was stitched for the first time.
