What a lovely Bank Holiday week end 🙂 The sun shone all week end, you couldn’t ask for nicer weather 🙂
We went to visit my parents and helped them decorate their kitchen, just a couple of coats of paint to make everything fresh. It was soon done leaving plenty of time to chat and go for a lovely walk in the almost bluebell festooned woods 😉
My Mum had been having a sort out of some drawers and presented me with some old cross stitch designs I’d made as a young girl…
Some linen with an embroidery design printed on it.
A half done embroidery with its original instructions from a magazine (a very old Woman’s Weekly)
Some embroidery transfers
A piece of fine crochet I’d designed and worked up many (many)years ago
AND some mystery objects
My Mum remembers using these strange objects to do some sort of embroidery – she stitched over them in a special way and then cut away the thread leaving a design behind… Anyone out there recognise what they are, and how to use them? I’d love to know.
In the meantime I’m going to have a think about what I can do with all these treasures so that they don’t just get pushed from one of my Mum’s drawers into one of mine 😉 Any ideas?
Until next time,
