I am so excited to share with you today:
* my first blog hop post
* Nancy Nicholson’s delightful book – Modern Folk Embroidery
* my take on the cuff bracelet
I love the benefits of Instagram. The wonderful supportive like minded people you e-meet [although I have met some a wonderful group of ladies in real-life – story for another day], the inspiration and the opportunities it offers. Like the opportunity to receive and review Nancy’s ebook.
The cover had me drooling from the word go. The book is full of:
beautiful colourful projects
an insightful stitch library
clear and easy to follow instructions
full size templates
I have always enjoyed embroidery and working with felt. So immediately I wanted to start making all the projects. I settled on the cuff bracelet for my first make from the book. I might just gift it for Christmas. When I was finished I thought the middle flowers looked like succulents.
A little difficult to see in the photo however [as with many of the other bloggers] I love the Eskimo laced running stitch.
I can see myself adapting these to make napkin rings and perhaps making the cushion next.
Although I’m the last stop on the hop – be sure to see what inspired the other bloggers.
