An Embroidery Pattern For You


Hello friends,

It’s been one of those weeks. I’ve been really busy but haven’t got much to show for it. And time has felt particularly wibbly wobbly. On Tuesday I was convinced that it was Thursday. I think today is finally Friday, but who knows. Maybe it’s actually only Wednesday. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Anyway. I thought I’d send you something pretty, so I made a pattern for you. I called it Tulips And Stars. I hope you like it. You can download it here.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Some Things I Enjoyed This Week

I did a bit of raw edge appliqué this week. I haven’t done much of that in a while. I love it. Just take some scraps of fabric and make some kind of picture without a plan or a pattern. Adding stitches. I love hand stitching. :-)

On our evening walk the other day the sun was out! It has been cold and cloudy and wet a lot lately. I need some warmth and light. It doesn’t feel very much like spring. But that evening it was sunny and I took lots of pictures of flowers.

I treated myself to a (digital) copy of the 100th issue of Selvedge magazine. It is such a lovely magazine. I’m reading it slowly, savouring the pictures and articles.
