After a very busy week I was tired and feeling lack lustre with my almost failed embroidery efforts. I'm participating in a swap at the moment, and have been having some bother with this project, ie I have had to re-think what I'm doing because it's not going well!!!!
The mail yesterday certainly cheered me up no end. I was fortunate to receive two back copies of the English magazine Workbox, a lovely card, and a beautifully worked Easter ATC. These were sent by a very dear lady with whom I have formed a wonderful friendship because of our interest in needlework and the computer. I am overwhelmed by the generosity and giving nature of many of the embroiderers I've met 'online', and feel quite humbled to have received such a wonderful keepsake.
I have been working on needlecases so far this year, and will endeavour to post some of the efforts so far. The needlecases are being made each month, so I'm planning to have 12 needlecases by the end of 2010. I have yet to complete April's. It is in the 'pipeline', so here's hoping it's done before May appears.
