I got time this week for a little sewing. I have wanted to try out this little pattern for a while now. Leanne posted a tutorial about creating a thread holder for all those little scraps that accumulate when you are stitching. I had the post bookmarked and had time this week to make my own. It is a fun little project and Leanne's instructions and photos are nice and clear. Thanks, Leanne for posting the tutorial.
I have given this to my lovely daughter to use when she is busy cross stitching so that she has somewhere pretty to put all the little waste threads. It is nice to be able to surround yourself with pretty but practical things.
A picture of some flowers to finish this post. These beautiful flowers were delivered to us during the week. I am enjoying the colours so much as each flower bud opens. It is not a common thing for us to receive flowers so these were very much appreciated. They were sent by my husband's work as a 'thinking of you' gift. His father is still very unwell from a brain injury sustained at Easter doing home maintenance. There has been some improvement but there is a long road ahead to recovery and there may well be long term damage - more testing and rehab is needed yet before any final outcome will be known.
