I visited our local library yesterday, and found a lovely embroidery book by Clare Youngs.
I've had lots of ideas from it, and hopefully will share any projects with you soon!
The simple linear shapes and patterns reminded me of a lovely picture from soulemama
This one is being sewn by her daughter.
This in turn inspired an idea for my own daughter to try the simple embroidery, as she draws mostly linear pictures. She has been working on some 'story maps' to prompt some creative writing.
I hope to have time to teach her some basic stitches to stitch some ideas from this work.
I will show you soon!
We are hopefully going to get some decorations down this weekend. I hope it's only some! I say every year that we will thin them out, but it never happens! We shall see...
