Happy new year to everyone! I hope that your year has got off to a good start.
I have a couple of new crafts that I’m planning on exploring more… the first is of course embroidery after winning that lovely prize last month, and the second is pyrography which has fascinated me for ages. Here are my first attempts at stitching (don’t look too closely!). Embroidered bags for Christmas presents.
I’ve had a go at stem stitch, chain stitch (this seems like a difficult one!), back stitch and french knots (which I’m not sure I’m doing as I should but they seem to come out like knots so I’m not complaining!). The motifs are adapted from the book Doodle Stitching by Aimee Ray.
I also made a couple of fine silver trinkets as presents which I’ll share with you soon.
