Hand stitching and wildlife

Well a busy half term with juggling work and children!
 Typically yesterday was a work day, when the sun shone.
Today was a visit to our local RSPB reserve with friends for some bird watching
 - however it took spotting some wonderful wildlife to call the day a success
 (as it was misty and wet even sleety at one point!)

The deer were so at ease in their surroundings they didn't seem to mind us at all!

I have only been able to snatch a few minutes at a time crafting at the moment
 and so have embarked on hand sewing little pictures to fit a couple of frames
I picked up cheaply a while ago.

This was inspired by something I saw in the latest Country Living magazine.

I have now signed up to do two swaps - my first a colour one and then also a Tilda swap - some of my favourite crafting books.

Anyway, just a short update for now as tea is ready and smelling great !


  1. Shame today was so yucky - we got spoilt yesterday with the sunshine.

    The deer are getting very tame - we have them come right into our front garden now and at christmas one was seen running down the high street!

  2. I like your little picture - I'm thinking of doing something similar, have you seen the Poppy Treffry book? Very inspiring!.

  3. I love this picture and this idea. My attempt would come nowhere close!

  4. Hi Linda,
    Thank you for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I say that applique in Country Living, now I want to have a go too because yours looks great!


I would love to hear from you with your thoughts :-)
