|my beautiful assistant and very dirty window frame|
Three years ago or so I decided I wanted to do something creative, to make a seasidey thing. I started what I thought was going to be a wallhanging for the bedroom. However, it all went horribly wrong and after months of work I realised that the painting I'd done had ruined the stitching so it was, in the current form, unusable. So two years later it's still in a cupboard waiting for me to chop it up and frame the small bits.

Inspired by this post from modflowers I decided I wanted to do a bit of embroidery, so I went to the library yesterday to look for something to help me. I haven't done any embroidery since I was at college, 20 years ago so I need some help to remember the stitches. I've started a small sampler. It's amazing how much concentration it's taking and I'm finding it very hard to be so neat. Whatever I'd normally do, I'm doing the opposite and having to concentrate is certainly that (I haven't made enough progress to take a picture!).
