Embroidery

Sorry for the delay in updating! I really do try for a once a week update, but life, and well, a new hobby, have gotten in the way. On top of illness around the house, I’ve taken up embroidery for real!

I used some birthday money to purchase myself a kit from Lilipopo and it’s the cutest thing. I’m loving seeing it coming along. It’s very soothing. Although I’ve now hit the french knots and they are taking more work than I expected. But the backstitch is good. I’m focusing on making my stitch lengths a little more even.

I also have been doing a bit more reading. I’ve been coming across a few more really enticing books to review over at YA YA YA. The “Paper Magician,” pictured above, really captivated me for several days.
