I was quite nostalgic when I saw some lovely Chicken Scratch Embroidery over at Kerri’s Blog. My grandmother taught me how to embroider like this when I was about 10 yrs old– it was my first introduction to a love of stitchery. I have started making up one of Kerri's gorgeous bookmarks and will show it off next post. I hope to teach Sarah how to do this soon.
On the weekend I was helping my Mum sort through my Grandparents House and came across my Nan’s apron collection. One was a lovely cross stitch apron that she used to wear at Christmastime.
I found a couple of short zips recently when I cleaned out my haberdashery supplies so used them to make up some coin purses.
I recently received this great bag pattern from Tania at Jet Designs. I made it up using some sturdy fabric from IKEA and lined with some black and while dotted cotton. It is such a handy size for shopping, and I am making a big effort lately to take my own bags shopping.
