Two ladies and a whole lotta wool
It’s a very short post today as I’ve not been as crafty on this trip as I would have hoped! Though I’ve taken lots of pics for inspiration later.
I know I said I was going to focus on my embroidery but I just couldn’t resist the pull of the crochet hook (especially one as comfy as the Tulip hook) so I popped into one of those big general stores and picked up some gorgeous crochet cotton – it’s so soft and I just love the pastel colours. I then made some crochet flowers whilst sitting on the balcony with a plate of olives and a big glass of ice cold water – bliss! I'm going to make a crochet flower garland when I have more to add (pictures to follow when it’s finished!) I love garlands for jazzing up the flat when we have friends over and these summery flowers would be perfect for a BBQ we have planned in a couple of weeks.
My embroidery effort (or lack of) has made me realise I need a little help with my embroidery skills, so I’m now on the hunt for a class (I know Charlie is keen so I’m sure I can rope her into joining me). Any recommendations for the London area would be gratefully received!
