THAT'S BLOOMING MARVELLOUS THAT IS.

There are some things I do enjoy in life.
I enjoy a good swapsie and I enjoy a bit of tinkering about with fabrics and thread on my sewing machine.
And so that is why I do so love joining in with Beth from Do what you love when she organises her stitched post card swaps.
This time round the theme was "Bloom"
Starting with a spot of light machine embroidery

I moved on to titchy bias strips.

With a bit of normal, if somewhat tricky stitching on the side.

And it must be said I was blooming pleased with the end result.
I hope its recipient will be too.

I have received my card in the swap, but its so gloomy today that I can't do it justice on the photographic front.
Next time.
It is really wonderful and I can't wait to show you.
I have so much to tell and show you and yet time is not my friend at the moment.
Muchos muchos day job stress and busyness as well as a considerable amount of knitting is making for a slightly scatterbrained and distracted Nora.
My bunnies are away at the moment having grandparental fun and much as I am enjoying the lay ins till 7 am every morning, some days I haven't woken up till 7.30! shock horror! I am really rather missing their shrill demanding voices and boney pokey elbows and scabby knees.
Tomorrow lunch time I shall be back to being a grumpy frazzled mum on top of every thing else.
Happy Holidays.
Love Nora xx

  2. Love, love, love the postcard.
    Enjoy your lay ins while you can, I'm attempting to train my girls to play quietly while I carry on sleeping during the holidays. They don't seem to have grasped the term 'quiet' though.

  3. It's bloomin' gorgeous!
    Tricky ain't it, enjoying a bit of alone, but missing the dickens out of 'em anyway.
    Time is not on my side neither, wishing you some downtime soon!
