While my hubby was driving I figured it was as good a time as any to learn how to hand embroider. I brought along a piece of fabric and some floss, a hoop of my Mother's and a needle. I have never embroidered before and have no idea how or what to do so I bought this book Doodle Stitching (for beginners like me!) and I brought it too. Anyway as we drove along I thought that a tree with some nice fall colours would be a good place to start. So, here it is....my first embroidery ever:
I like it and so do the kids and my hubby. So I will sew it into something and keep it or give it as a gift we will see.
Besides that drive, this weekend has been full of water....in my basement! Not all through thankfully! Just in the cold room, which is separated by a six inch step from my fabric/cutting room. I bailed out over 200 litres of water and had to change the hose on the sump pump that ruptured due to the amount of water rushing in from the earth around my foundation! Thank God my Dad (who built my house) was very creative and I have a sump hole in both ends of my basement. One with a pump and one free flow for when it gets bad. Currently....it is BAD!!! Alas, we are mostly dry, except the two-three inches left in the cold room.
I hope every one is having a great weekend.....safe and dry!
Thanks for coming by.
