This started as a cross stitching diary. I've always wanted to try out different embroidery techniques and have dabbled in Hardanger, goldwork, ribbon embroidery
and stumpwork. I am now enjoying learning crazy quilting and teaching myself dressmaking.
Another good stitching month. Too wet and cold outside so perfect excuse to stay indoors. We even had our first snow in Auckland since 1939. Mind you it only lasted a few minutes and I missed it. Here is my progress to date on Love Letter.
I'm going to leave this now to start on HAED's Spirit of Winter, a Josephine Wall design. Refer to an earlier post for what this will look like. This will be done on 22ct Hardanger. I got the fabric and fibres from 123stitch a couple of weeks ago. So much cheaper than buying in New Zealand, even with the cost of postage. I've spent the last week preparing the fabric and getting project cards labelled and threads sorted so i'm ready to start this weekend.
