not much of anything

I've not got a lot of craftiness to blog this week
i have been busy drafting more cross stitch patterns
but have nothing much stitched up to show off

accidentally arty photo of us in his sunglass lenses!

i bought some new fishing nets and as it was a lovely sunny day
we went and tested them out at the rockpools
if you look very very VERY close in this bucket you'll see what we caught!

oh i do love to live beside the seaside :o)

I bought a couple of tiny hoops and a booklet of embroidery stitches on eBay
and used a scrap from a vintage table runner i'd upcyled
to try out a few different techniques and colours

why do i do my best work on scraps of fabric
that i meant to just doodle on ??!!!!
