Oh well, I'm in such a gloomy mood, although I got some more sewing done and find it really enjoyable. Even holding the needle gets easier (which is a very good thing) as long as I'm sticking to my plan of doing everything in small steps. Here's a little birdie I made. It's my own design.
I'd like to stich a leaf. This idea is inspired by Lupin's oak leaves, which I like so much but don't want to copy. I have a nice collection of dried leaves and chose this one to be my model. I can't recommend this shape though, it's a pain to cut out but I hope to present you the result quite soon.
