I've been sewing!


It's been a very long time since I did any embroidery, which I used to love. If you saw my new goodies post I bought at the NEC you may have spotted a pack of two reindeer to sew. At just £1 I couldn't resist and amazed myself at the fact that I have actually made one already and not just put the pack away out of sight. I really enjoyed making him even though the instructions were a bit odd.For example how do you sew all round with running stitch and then most of the way with blanket stitch and then add the wadding? Anyway I figured it out and added some little bells to his antlers which weren't part of the pack. He will be decorating my home this year and I will be making the other one for my Mum as part of her pressy.

He's so cute! I often find that instructions can be a bit erratic with some kits, so usually 'do my own thing'!
