It feels really good to be sitting here writing this post after a long summer away from the blog.
How the heckadoodle are you all? I'm hoping you are all really well and have enjoyed at least a little bit of time off holidaying in one form or another?
I personally have probably had the most relaxed summer yet, which ultimately came down to letting go of ALL the things I had hoped or wanted to achieve, accepting I had no control over the weather, AND lastly that pj's on till noon is a perfectly acceptable holiday activity! :)
Here is a little montage of what we got up to (when our Pj's were removed prior to noon!)
Funnily enough, (and as is usually the case) after easing back on what I had hoped to get done business and creative wise, what actually transpired was a decent amount!
I finished a few embroidery projects.....
This is a wedding gift for one of my oldest friends who was marrying her love of many years. She's a scottish girl, he's an english guy and their home is in the French Alps..... seemed like the perfect gift to celebrate :)
I added a bear and bee to my embroidery repertoire too....
Meet Maurice, the handsome bear....
I also created 3 new embroidery pattern PDF's....... remember Beyonce's "Put a Ring on it"?.....
well I've come up with an embroidery slant on that...when ever in doubt of what to stitch.....
I stitched up this sweet peterpan collar with ....oh wait....not just one bird, but 2 birds on it!
OR you could always......
Put a stag on it is available here OR
Put a flower on it is available here
Genius don't you think?! :)
I also squeezed in some weaving, which has become a slight addiction and now finds me
hacking sawing away on some unsuspecting pieces of wood which Stu has left lying around. (he's a cabinet maker, so there is ALWAYS some piece of wood or another taking up residence in our home) I'll fill you in on a later date as to what comes of that!
Some of my recent weaving adventures.
So there you have a very brief catch up on my summer adventures! I hope you have been enjoying the last few months as much as I have.
It's good to be back :)x
