Just as an aside, you may like to see this little project, a recent gift for my Mum.
The girls drew around their hands on some lovely red flannel and then
we I stitched around the shapes. That little thing in the middle is a heart, but they're not happy with it. It probably just needs a little bling. Sequins anyone?
I got the idea from an embroidery workshop I attended at Pick Up Your Needles in Tinahely Co Wicklow. (Next event here). A very easy project, the girls had fun and of course it's a winner with family members.
It's supposed to be a seat cover. Of course it's not actually finished. Did you get me mixed up with somebody else by any chance?
