As the wonderful header says, I am trying something new!!
I bet your all wondering what and OMG! is she side tracking again!? lol
I cannot take all the credit for this... I actually saw a fellow bloggers post and thought... hmmm that sounds like fun! It was on Deborah's Bits and Pieces blog if you want to take a look :)
Thank You for the inspiration Deborah :)
I joined a facebook group called Joyful Embelishments run by Valerie Bothell. Over the course of 2015 the aim is for her to post 5 new stitches every week. Then come the end of the year there will be a total of 260 new stitches to use!! WOW!!!
I had an idea to make a booklet.. with all those stitches I am going to have to do it by month. So for the month of January I have started my booklet and done the first 5 stitches. I am really pleased with what I have done... considering I have never done anything like this before.
Also the idea of the booklet was purely for my memory sake I think.. you all know with my learning difficulties I do and have forgotten things. I thought this would be the simplest way to 'keep' all this new information. And I can refer to it at any stage.
Here are my first stitches.... oh yes they are stitched on a square of beige linen... which was actually some new linen cloth napkins my my acquired many years ago.. I cut each one into 4 and used each quarter to stitch my design on. I am using cross stitch threads and beads I already have.
I hope you like what I have done so far.. like I say its something totally different... oh but a lot of fun!
As I had a great time putting it all together and now cannot wait for the next weeks stitches!
Oh dont worry I will be cross stitching too!! I have so much time on my hands right now I thought why not!!
I hope your all having a wonderful weekend....
Smiles to you all :)
