My friend

I said a few days ago that a couple of friends sent me a birthday present, well another friend sent me a birthday present as well.

Lets ignore my birthday was nearly 3 weeks ago, but that is the problem with having socially anxious friends, post offices are a bitch, not only are they normally crowded but you have to talk to someone. So I am chuffed they managed it (both live in the north) Sharon is exempt cause she is the States and my email got lost.

But anyway M sent me a present

Make your own T-Shirt?

Sorry the photo isn’t great, but its a cross stitch frame, which might be a bit of surprise for some people. But I do do it, although not recently, however its been in the back of my mind to star it up again and maybe sell some. Not sure if there is much call for it. But here you go

cross stitch

This is one of the simple ones.

    Glad you like it. It was worth the drive and the queue at the post office.
    And I’ll be expecting a hand-made kick-ass bookmarker from you for my birthday.
    Just saying.

  2. I haven’t, nor has my wife. It looks intricate. Very nicely done.

    And I forgot. I love both scenes. The horoscopes are brilliant fun, and the Henry VIII and the wives is amazing. You are so talented!

  4. I did needlepoint years ago and really enjoyed it. It got me into a zen kind of relaxed state.

    I used to do counted cross stitch. They are cute in frames. You can also use fabric to make a border and back to finish a piece if you don’t want to frame it.

    I’ve never tried anything like that myself, but it looks very impressive.
