A craft legacy

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:

Embroidery hoops

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?

How lovely to think of you to give these lovely items to. I'm sure you will soon find lots of projects to keep you busy :) I hope to see some of your endeavours soon.
