It's taken me 3 years and 3 months but I've finally finished my first cross stitch projects!!
The wonderful Emily Peacock creates some truly stunning cross stitch designs and
I thought I'd buy one when I was pregnant. I realised upon it's arrival that the Kiss cushion
was probably a little ambitious for my first project! I then went on to give birth to my daughter,
come to grips with a health condition and start a business!
So I have my excuses as to why it took so long.
I found cross-stitch completely immersive and relaxing and more entertaining than the TV.
I'd switch on the radio and listen to 6Music whilst stitching away. Bliss!
If you do fancy having a crafty project I highly recommend checking out Emily's site here.
She has many brightly coloured, unique designs with more being added all the time.
She's also been on Kirstie Allsopp's Handmade Britain and is genuinely darn lovely.
I just now need to turn this baby into a cushion!! (eep!)
And then choose the next design....!
