Something old ....

Saturday, June 26, 2010
Winter and I just don't agree!  My body was definitely made for warm weather.  I haven't been able to do much sewing this week as my fingers are very much the worse for wear from the cold weather.  I counted 13 chillblains just on the right hand index finger yesterday, most of which are on the tip.  That's not to mention all the other fingers covered in red sore lumps!  Everything I do hurts, and it just hasn't been possible to hold a needle as much as I would like.

So ... I thought you might be like me ... I just love looking at lovely things other people have made, so here's an array of "something old" for you to look at, chosen for no other reason than that I don't think I have shown you before!


One day when we were out bushwalking, I took a photo of this little Scarlet Robin and later turned it into this raised embroidery picture.  Here's a bit closer on the bit that matters:


This is a little notebook cover I made.  I guess I have made dozens of these over the years:


I am quite addicted to bullion stitch roses!


And one more photo - a bag when I was in "on point" mood:


I hope you've enjoyed 'just browsing' my "something old"!

Happy stitching!
