Hi..we are still feling the cold weather here in Scotland.....it is a big change after spending time in Florida, but, although snow is lying the buds are showing so bring on Spring!
I am teaching various crafts on three cruises this year and am happy to say all the preparation is done. A lot of work is involved in designing projects, sourcing materials, assembling kits and writing instructions and it is always a nice feeling to have all that behind you
Now I can look forward go visiting beautiful places and teaching in a fun evironment with passengers.
I don't do "idle hands" so I am using this time to brush up on and improve some skills.
I wanted to practice French knots so came up with this idea for a needle case
I sewed silk ribbon roses (I have written a tutorial for this in an earlier blog) and added lazy daisy flowers and French knots
I sewed little seed beads around the edge
The small red heart was only sewn part of the way round so I can keep a needle threader and thread to hand
I recently purchased the Sizzix spool die
this makes life a bit easier as I measure, cut and wind thread and floss as required to complete kits
I enjoyed doing this little project and making something useful
