When I was in Norfolk last weekend, I managed to find some Aida cloth (or as I call it, cross stitch fabric). I have been meaning to buy some for months, but just kept forgetting. I have always loved cross stitching. When I was small, my Mum would keep me occupied while she was sewing by drawing pictures onto paper and adding some holes with a pencil. Then I would be given a needle and some thread and I would sew around the picture! I also remember making a cross stitch greetings card when I was in Primary school and was very proud of myself!
What I have wanted to do for a while, is to experiment with making some cross stitch initial badges. So, for the past few days I have been sewing in bed, in the passenger seat in the car and in various other places, and here are the results...
I have been making various letters and have used different colours and fonts. I will be holding a stall at the Leicester Vintage Fair in October, so I am trying to make lots of new items to sell at the moment.
Just need to get my craft room finished first!
