colour & threads & felt...
While I was recovering from my cold - well enough to want something to do, but not enough energy to do much - my sister suggested I might enjoy playing around with some embroidery. We have quite a collection of pretty threads & felt (Mum, Kathryn & Amy all do/have done embroidery & such). So I picked some colours & stared stitching....& I made a brooch.
I really enjoyed the process, so I made another one...
I don't know how much time I will actually spend on this, but it's definitely something I'll continue. It's nice to have such a compact, portable craft (PMC can be a bit messy) to work on in front of the TV, or when we travel.
I'll probably put a bit more planning into the next one - at least decide & cut out the felt shape before I start.
Really I've just fallen for all the pretty colours in the thread box.....& it's given me an excuse to add to the collection, which could be good -or not, lol.
