Hello! I've finally found some time to share my new project for the dark Autumnal evenings. Can you guess what it is?
I stumbled across Emily's website a little while ago and fell in love with her typographical designs. I'm a sucker for graphic design, typography and print. Don't get me started on Letterpress.
Now. I must confess something before I go on. I'm not really a tapestry type of gal. In fact, I've only ever started one, back in my teens, and it was a pair of lovebirds in lurid green. It was never finished. Enough said.
So, all in all, it seems rather peculiar that I had the urge to buy a tapestry. Particularly one that comes with a huge chart, which can only mean one thing. Concentration... Oh dear.
We made a beeline for her stand as soon as we'd negotiated our way into the Knitting and Stitching Show.
Within 10 minutes I was the proud owner of my lovely cushion to be, having had a nice chat with Emily and her friend. It's always funny to discover just how small the world really is. Anyway, this is what my cushion will hopefully look like.
And do you know what? This tapestry lark is addictive, although it's not exactly the quickest of crafts. I'd forgotten how long it takes to do just a small patch. But it's so therapeutic - it's actually just what I need to wind down post-work at the moment. It's going to look fab on the sofa. And if I really get the bug, there's a matching 'Kiss'.
