On a crafty mission...


I've been feeling crafty lately, and, it being No-Buy July and all, of course I'm itching to start new projects. Which all invariably involve some sort of purchase. So first I pout, then make a cup of tea, and then have a think about the projects I currently have in the pipeline and that need finishing. And being the kind of person who tends to start things with vigour and then never finish them, I have plenty of half-finished little enterprises lying around.


Like this embroidery! My grandmother, who claims that she never would've gotten around to finishing it herself, gave me this tablecloth to finish. True to form, I started diligently back in January, as a way to pass the long, hot days while I waited for the imminent arrival of our little Baboushka. And as soon as she popped out, so did my motivation for anything arts and crafts.

Until now :-)

Well done! You're amazing. I was just talking to some friends today about the art projects we never manage to touch since having our babies - I haven't managed to read more than a chapter of a book since she was born either!

This is just beautiful!

@Eco-Chic-Mummy: I know, I miss being able to devour whole books (or at least whole chapters) at a time!

@K.Line: thanks! The best part is, the leaves are already stenciled onto the fabric, which makes it a heck of a lot easier ;-)
