Doodle a day

...keeps me plodding away, a bit if a departure from my usual stuff but fun all the same!! 

And it's finished!!

This chap is on his way to his new owner very soon! 

Felt appliqué is the best, no fraying and easy to stitch!! 

This did end up happening to my needle 40 minutes in though! I guess I'm a bit heavy handed when I stitch!! :D 

June is Zipping...

Literally Zipping past me! 
I'm blinking and missing the summer months! I'm going to have to try an make the most of these lazy sunny days quick sharp before I miss them 

Bliss, there's been knitting on the beach whilst watching my BFF Finn running about and some doodling to be done aswell the beach is the best time to catch up with some crafting!!

What's your favourite beach time craft?

Keep on stitching

So the past few days I have been attached to my embroidery needles and my magnifier glass!! 

I've been working some crazy hours lately so have been getting beauty sleep and then stitching the night away in the early hours 

My recommendation of the week is graph paper notebooks...why oh why have I not  picked one up before, it makes drafting out an embroidery idea so much easier!

Practice makes perfect

I have been spending a lot of time practicing my drawing recently, I have the fantastic MA$TER_CR4FT to thank for my inspiration!
I am a firm believer that practice makes perfect, so I try and do a drawing every day to improve my drawing and learn new techniques.
