Embroidery

A while ago I mentioned that I've suffered an eye injury recently.  This has made hand sewing tricky, but the optician assures me that if I keep trying my brain will find ways to compensate and I should regain all my skills. 

With this in mind I packed my linen scraps, small embroidery hoop and threads when we went on a family holiday.  I made a few sketches (which you don't get to see because my drawing skills are non-existent...) and then in my spare moments doodled on linen with thread!  Below are the results.









I plan to incorporate these into Christmas gifts.  Not sure what or how as yet though!  Come back on Thursday when I'll show you my new summer frock.
