Today’s lesson is:
What to do when your sampler just ain’t working!
I’m a big fan of cross stitch – it’s the first crafty thing I ever learnt how to do and you can make some truely beautiful works of art with it. However, I’ve been having major problems with my latest project. For some reason it just wasn’t working – something that anyone who’s seen the pattern (Bothy Threads Dictionary of Tea) will find hard to fathom. It’s colourful, fun and a great kit to do unless you’re me! But instead of throwing it in a bag somewhere to malinger with my other UFOs until some distant future date I decided to practise my make do and mending and upcycled part of it into a birthday card!
Meanwhile back at Buns and Balls I’ve been developing a range of notecards/photographs – keep an eye out for Ginger Tea!
