Only 3 more 'i LoVe....' posts until the linky!
So I hope you are thinking about what you love!
Today is something that I do love,
but that I just don't have time to do.
I dream of the day when I will be able to have enough time to myself to get on and do it.
What is it?
I used to do a lot of cross stitch as a teenager,
I have a work in progress.
It's been in progress since 1997,
that was when I last had the time.
I think I may have done a bit more to it just after Beanie was born,
but since then it has sat in our bedroom untouched.
I want to get it finished,
but there are other things I want to try.
I want to learn to crochet.
My gran taught me when I was about 12.
I never started anything and so have forgotten.
I regret that deeply now.
My gran died when I was 19 and I wish like mad that she could be the one to teach me again.
I have discovered some fab craft blogs that have great ideas and tips,
including the amazing Red Ted Art.
I bought myself the Cath Kidston Crochet book for Christmas,
so that I can have a go,
the instructions in it and those from Red Ted Art.
I hope I can achieve something!
I would also like a sewing machine, to make a variety of different things.
I was inspired by the lovely Kirstie Allsopp on her Handmade Britain show and would love to have a go at machine embroidery.
I can see me now.
A lovely little work area in our bedroom with lots of fabrics,
buttons (I love buttons!) and ribbons.
My sewing machine set up.
I will let you know how I get on,
if and when I attempt these but fingers crossed I will get a chance soon!
