Here's my first bouquet from my new cut flower garden. I think it's adorable. It's fun to cut some in the garden and add a few from other plants in the yard. Part of the garden has gone over to the herbs but I think they might find their way into the bouquets too.
I've been working on this crewel project for the last few weeks. Part of it was done when I got it and done well I might add. It's been fun getting back into crewel -it's been a good 25 years since I've done it. I also have a job doing cross stitch on a printed cloth. Both these projects are not expensive to purchase. Compared to needlepoint they are very reasonable. But both these projects are hard and require some talent. Needlepoint is a snap in comparision. I've been thinking about how cost of project has no reflection on degree of difficulty. I honestly had forgotten how much fun embroidery is. I like changing up my crafts and these have been a good change of pace. I've signed up to get Alicia Paulsen's new embroidery kit. I'm looking forward to it.
