New Embroidery Book

Hello from a very sunny Holland! Last week we have been spoiled with quite nice weather, so I spend a lot of time outside.

Indoors I’ve been looking at this amazing book I  bought at a craft fair last week.


It is written in French,  but all the charts are so clear that that is not a problem at all. In this book the embroidery is all about haberdashery and the pictures are beautiful.



Of course I had to try a little embroidery myself. So I assembled a collection of designs from the book into this.


This little piece measures only 14x9 cm (5.5x3.5 inch) and was a lot of fun to do. I’m not completely sure, but I think I’m going to use this for an armchair caddy, using the tutorial by Hugs from Helen.

Groetjes, Dorien

Perfect! Isn't it great when inspiration hits and you just can't wait to do a project yourself!
