SAL 39: Happy Dance….

Aaah, I had this all ready to post – but my brain has been such a scramble that I forgot all about it – sorry everyone!

Yay, feeling very pleased with myself as I have finally finished my little blue wren etui, designed by Jenny Adin-Christie. I have loved learning lots of new techniques, sewing with ribbon and using chenille threads.

So here is my little wren…

We are a small group of crafters using a variety of different techniques. Please check out the fabulous stitching by all the other members of the SAL. If you are interested in joining us you can contact Avis for details.

Now, as a primary teacher, I often give up evenings to teach enthusiastic children how to embroider. I am now just about to embarked into the world of blogging. Who knows if anyone will be interested, or if I can even keep it up. But here goes....
