Hello to all my blogging friends. Here we are on another Wednesday exposing our spaces to the world. This week my craft room has been revealing a few hidden treasures that are now spread out on the ironing board so I can share them with you.
I have a guilty secret and I feel I now know you all well enough to be honest and own up......
My name is Annie and I was, in a former life, a x stitcher and embroiderer....Oh there you go now I have said it!!
There are other secrets that I may share with you at another time depending on how you react to this one :-)
I have been having a good sort out and have found some of my hidden treasures....Can anyone tell me why they were never framed?....answers on a postcard please :-)
I just know some of you will want a closer look so I have collaged them so you can enlarge for a good
snoop browse at your leisure.
There are hours of work here and they were all rolled up together and hidden in a cooking foil box!
The one in the top left with the paving slabs on has literally 1000s of french knots making up the details....did I really have that much spare time on my hands ? You can see one of them is dated 1996 and I would have had a 12 yr old daughter , an 11 year old daughter and a 9 year old son back then so were there more hours in my days? How did I do it? and why oh why were they never framed up?.....and this really is just the tip of the iceberg folks :-)
I have also found this shoe box crammed full of little cross stitch kits, some of which came on the front of magazines.....and yes folks I probably still have all the magazines too!!
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do with them all.....I wont be doing the x stitching now and they should go to good homes don't you think?
There you go. I feel so much better now I've confessed.
My latest LillyBo quilt and bag are also finished but I am still knitting a little friend to go in the pocket so pop back later in the week if you'd like to see it all. I will do my best to pop to see as many blogs as I can in between my sewing jobs later but would like to say thank you to all who call by here to leave such lovely comments.
Don't forget to link up your happy posts here to share with others and make the world a happier place to live.
