Tree embroidery

A couple of years ago I went to a meeting of people who wanted to share their individual crafts with others. I met a lady who afterwards visited me at home and she brought this small embroidery as a gift. Alas, I have forgotten her name. I think I read it recently and thought it was on the back of this tree, but it must have been somewhere else.

Practicing embroidery with all those little bits of leftover threads is on my list for 2018.


An Early Present

Look what arrived in the mail yesterday. My penpal Uli has sent another big, soft and mysterious envelope like she always does at this time of the year. A handmade card, a purse with a secret compartment and a pin cushion were inside.

Although, I don’t think I could push pins into this little chap’s back – don’t want to hurt him. I think I’ll call him Speedy for arriving so early before Christmas (despite travelling with Deutsche Post 😉 ).
