at me ... then carried on very non impressed it seemed to me !
We had some bad news from our friend, his buyers have pulled out!!! He was packed to go on the 23 of August... the money wasted on his survey the other end and Solicitors fees and his phone was cut off ready and internet not to mention loosing his house the other end!! So he has asked for the lines to be re connected ... unpacked some boxes and we are going to visit him for a weekend in September. He had signed before he came here but they had not and decided to pull out and rent instead .... Its been so stressful for him.
As I said we have changed our plans for holiday and when it is booked I will let you know but now it is October ....
Red work embroidery looks so stunning and it is so easy with one colour and just little stitches. It is so effective ...
If anyone is looking to start a easy project to be added to anything then this is very good way to start especially for C........... Stockings .. I know I keep mentioning it lately but if you want to stitch something for then as a gift or for yourself as decoration for the house, you need to give yourself time and not be starting it in December so I thought I would show you all a great little You Tube film to get you inspired.
I am stitching little squares to attach to a table cloth for that time of year.
Indeed you can stitch things for bags or for a hanging hearts as it shows you in the following You Tube video and it is only short just over a minute but it will hopefully inspire you like it has me. I am going to design some little ones just for red thread and use my precious hand dyed shaker thread in Holly Berry colour.
Also whilst off I bought some fabrics from two friends over the internet and I am very pleased with them and have taken pictures for you to see and look at on here .. First picture at the top of this blog is two pieces of fabric I bought from the lovely Yvonne of Absolutely Evocative and the second picture of some gorgeous eiderdown fabric again is from Clare of Daisy Darling ... thrilled with all three pieces. Yvonne also made me a heart out of some of the same fabric and it is hung up in my sewing room as it is filled with lavender ... muncher repellent !!!!
Well I will leave you with this little You Tube video to watch it really only a few minutes long but it inspired me to design some redwork and I hope you enjoy it.
Have a great day and Happy Stitching!
