I know I have been going on about this but it's finished now
I've finished my little crochet project. It was a bit like patchwork because I had to sew up all the squares and I put some lining in it. My husband said it was ugly and my son said, "It's very you Mum." My friend thought it was cool so I'll go with her comment! Anyway the weather has been really hot and although I have been craving the warm weather, it's been bad for my hands so I had a day of rest from sewing today.
I'm just an ordinary working Mum who likes to do things. I am not really good at relaxing quietly so I tend to be making things all the time. I love the feel and colour of textiles and have tried my hand at tapestry weaving, knitting, stumpwork, embroidery - wool, ribbon and silk, lace making, mosaics, hardanger, crewel, and quilting. The quilting has only come about in the last few years as it is much kinder to my hands and I can work on it for longer periods than the embroidering.
