My children have been deciding that sleep is for the weak and getting up very early indeed. so I thought at 7.30 this morning that it was time to sew up the last 3 small biscornu for Ann's necklaces.
Day 4: How did you learn how to stitch?
I've embroidered on and off for years, my Nan taught me to embroider when I was about 12, just doing some straight stitches. I stitched this little tray cloth which I still have now. I also did one of those little samplers on binca at school that most kids did aged about 7. As for cross stitching I learnt about 7 years ago with the eeyore kit. I just picked it up and gave it ago. I don't think we ever stop learning about our crafts and developing techniques and methods to make it more challenging and enjoyable.
I finished the purple biscornu and I love how its turned out. It has a beaded border and I've used the star buttons. I'm going to post it off to Steff tomorrow so watch this space for a photo soon.
Well thats me for today. Happy crafting, Kerry. x
