Now that Christmas is over and the new year well and truly begun I can show you the journal I made for my daughter. For obvious reasons I couldn’t show it before but now . . . here it is! And very pleased with it I was too as I entrusted it to the New Zealand and Australian postal services.
I really enjoyed making the cover, just stitching, embellishing and letting one addition dictate what would happen next. And while my bullion stitch bridges are a little wonky . . . I’m rather pleased with them. No doubt I shall improve with practise now that Karen Ruane‘s course Swathed in Stitch has begun . . . I would imagine it isn’t too late to join in and I heartily recommend it.
Most importantly, my daughter was impressed with her present!
