Stitch me Up Embroidery Blog Hop



I  joined the Stitch me up Embroidery blog hop which was an opportunity to learn some new stitches  and have a go at  8 lovely embroidery patterns. I also sent for the threads as well to complete the patterns. 

I only managed to complete one of them - but I do intend to do the red work ones as well as soon as I find time over the next few weeks. 
I made a padded cover for my Kindle as even though it has a leather cover I felt it needed some extra protection for when we are on holiday. 


There are lots of other blogs to visit so have a look at all the great embroidery that has been done. 

THURSDAY March 21st
