So readers will know that this is not a craft blog. I skip around and flirt with the world that is craft quite a lot and often have grand idea's but some how they don't seem to come to fruition? Honestly I have no idea why?
Am I too lazy?
Do I think it is silly?
Do I think I will turn into my Nana overnight?
Erm... No, No and No
(hee hee well kinda yes to the last one but that is going to happen anyway right - and if my Nana is anything to go by - or my Grandma then bring it on I say - AMAZING/INSPIRING WOMEN!)
Today, however my creative tendancies have been tickled in quite a serious and unexpected way! I am EXCITED and can't wait to look in more detail at the below book that has just plopped onto my doorstep!
|A Rainbow of Stitches|
I like small projects - I have learned with the crafts that I have started/tried/abandoned..that I am an instant gratification kinda gal. Things I can do in a night or a week (if I can see progress) are great for me. I clearly have the attention span of a small kitten!
THIS BOOK IS PERFECT!
I have been looking online for a little while for little motif patterns for Cross Stitch which I can use for Cards, Gift Tags etc... I haven't been that lucky. Then - last week MoonCalfMakes posted THIS POST. I immediately and spontaneously visited amazon and delved into my pocketses and made a purchase.
It is chock full of little designs, motifs and ideas that can be added to pretty much ANYTHING
(hubby better not sit still for too long)
Now I need to find some monies for some fine weave Aida/Linen so I can GET STARTED!
