Ok. We’ve all done it. How hard can it be? I can make a better version than that… But perhaps not the week before Christmas. And perhaps not three. Yes, last week I decided to make my 3 baby neices a cloth activity book. My own children have had years of enjoyment from theirs. I’ve always thought it could have been a bit…I dunno…prettier?
You know what I mean – stitched lettering, not fabric pen. Appliqued, not just drawn. and if I’d had this inspiration in June, instead of Decmeber, all that would be true. Actually it still is true. They are beautiful.
They just took soooooo much longer than I anticipated!! So, I am still alive, I have just been stitching every spare moment available, in between two children with Chicken Pox, and popping into work from time to time.
And I am so lucky to have wonderful friends who came to my rescue, just when panic was begining to set in – Thanks for sharing the coffee, gin (!!) stitching, chocolates, and very late nights with me Sharon and Fran!
And they are beautiful. Here’s a peek at a couple of pages:
And Welcome to Kahlia, who is going to be posting from time to time too – she’s off to a great start, and already inspiring different projects.
