...and the Urban Threads photos







Embroidery

Urban Threads have quickly become my favourite art designs. Picked up more than 10 new ones in the sale last week to add to the collection and have done some test stitch outs. After 10 days of flu I am coming back to life, I think!

Christmas and Birthday

Despite the miles that separate us I was able to spend Christmas Day / birthday with all three of my wonderful children, husband, mum and Tim's girlfriend. A lovely, relaxing day.

Haven't ventured far outside as the pavements have been so slippery, but have spent a lot of time getting to know my new embroidery machine and the software.

Some photos of my makes...

Santa Visited Early...

He brought me this lovely embroidery machine so I've been busy making things to hang on the Christmas tree.

Christmas Tree Skirt

Back to some sewing at last. My machine is set up permanently again as renovation work on the house is almost done.

Using an EZ Dresden Plate ruler I've put together a simple Christmas tree skirt. I like finding a purpose for my practice pieces.
