London in a bookmark
We arrived in London almost 3 months ago so I've been building up my useful box slowly. I made up a sewing kit before we left & put it in the box that we post via sea mail. I've been really longing for that box to arrive & it finally did last Thursday!! Yippee. I pulled out that sewing with glee & gave it a kiss, like you would kiss the ground after landing safely! So I feel a bit more human now.
Something that has kept my hand in, so to speak has been making this bookmark for L's 93year old Grandma for Christmas. I thoroughly enjoyed making it & am pretty pleased with how it's turned out! I bought the crosstitch pack from Liberty - my new favourite store! I just now hope that Grandma likes it!!
The kit came with the base fabric, thread, needle, backing felt fabric & the instructions! Perfect for me since I haven't cross stitched in so long.
Now we just wait to see what Grandma thinks!
