Thank you all for your lovely comments on my hand-made card. I hope the receiver will appreciate it too. It is time for me to reveal the reason behind the card...
Mr T's parents came over last week from the UK for a few days and Mr T's mum gave me a parcel from Mr T's nan. Mr T's nan is a wonderful crafter and has a real talent for cross-stitch and embroidery. Sadly, with age, she now finds it too fiddly to work with small needles and she has had to give up. Mr T's nan has 4 grand-daughters, none of which interested in crafts, so she decided that her craft legacy should come to me. I was very touched.
So this is how I unexpectedly ended up with many packs full of cross-stitch projects:
And a small fortune worth of embroidery thread!
I have never tried my hand at embroidery so I need to find some easy projects to start practising... Any suggestions?
