Weekend WIPs

Hello and thanks to all the visitors from the Creative Space game (and anywhere else you may have come from). It was nice to "meet" some new crafty types and discover some great new blogs. I tried my best to reciprocate comments and visit all the sites linked at kootoyoo, although last night was a tad ... bumpy, and I can't be sure I didn't miss someone. Thanks, all the same, to everyone who stopped by. Hopefully I will find time to "play" again.

Spirals
As for actual crafting, I've a small project (two small ones, actually) in the works that I am hopeful will be completed this weekend. They're simple bits embroidered on linen, and I'm finding them incredibly relaxing after that last doozie of a project. And it's my first time to work with linen. Yum!

Hope you have a happy weekend out there in blogland!

What beautifully embroidered swirls! I'd love to learn embroidery, I have so many ideas I could use it on. Lovely to meet you at the 'creative space' party and thanks for your lovely comment!

That does look relaxing. I've never tried embroidering, but after seeing lots of great examples of it lately, I'm inspired to give it a go.

Ok, you would-be embroiders, try it! Really, it's very simple to get started, it's addicting, and wonderfully inexpensive. Try it and show us what you can do! :)

Hullo - I'm just admiring your wonderful citrus colors! Just the thing for brightening up a day. And I promise to give embroidery a go... one day...
