Last weekend we had lots of visitors, a bbq with all our visitors and lots of drinkies. It was the weekend before my birthday. Whilst mowing the lawn this was wandering around the garden. And yes I did keep an eye out for mummy as she has a habbit of attacking the neighbours.
As I said it was the weekend before my birthday and my crafty friend, the bobble lady, made this for me, I love it.
So I received my vanishing ink pen, I also have a friend who's birthday is coming up, she has just given me champers so I wanted to do something nice. I trawled the internet looking for sayings and pictures and came up with this.
Dug out some fabric and embroidery threads
And made this. Maybe yellow wasnt the best colour to use. It says 'dogs leave pawprints in your heart' and I really like it.
It took me all afternoon and most of the evening to make. I forgot how fiddly embroidery is and how much it hurts when I stab myself, several times.
Need to make more hoop art, its great fun if a little painful.

My delivery arrived, so excited to start. I do have to wait for another delivery though, a vanishing pen as I think embroidering freehand is a bit ambitious for me at the moment. This is it. I have loads of designs going round my head and have drawn a few make.
I will be using these for one of them, I want to make them using crochet, buttons and embroidery although not sure every one will have all 3 but i think most will.
We were at Silverstone at the weekend watching the grand prix, before the race the Red Arrows had a display, I think this was my favourite bit. How romantic to be proposed to under this, I am already married so too late for me.
Need to find all the materials I need, I have decided on an easy one to begin with so watch this space..............
