A Little Break

Thank you all for your helpful thoughts and advice on my Christmas ornament last week! I’m still a bit stressed about whether my decisions are really in the best interest of the project or if I’m just trying to rush through lazily so that I can move on to the next thing. With that being the case, I’ve decided to take a little break from cross stitch for a while and try out a new craft or two.

I’ve bought a book on goldwork (this one) and I’m feeling really inspired to try quilling from looking at the incredible pictures on Junoesque by Neha.

I’ve also got some old surface embroidery projects half finished, and a couple of barely started embroidered tablecloths that I inherited from my Nana and would love to work on.

I hope the change of pace helps clear my mind a little! Wishing everyone a crafty and relaxing July
