Cross StitchI have been working on a project since 2008. It isn't big or complicated, but still have not finished my 8 year old project and over Christmas during a sort out I found 5 further projects to be done. This will all keep me occupied for a while you'd think. Well you would, wouldn't you, until that is, Kirstie Allsopp hit my small telly box in the run up to Christmas with 'Kirstie's Homemade Britain'. Well it was an epiphany.
The crafts were simply stunning and easy enough for even me to have a go at. What a good job there was a Pay-Day at the end of her series. Amazon was laughing all the way to the bank by the time I had purchased everything I needed to make: Hand-scrub, Leather Bound Notebooks & Heart Garlands. The postman certainly earned his Christmas bonus delivering all my lovely materials and I have spent the last year making my first crafts which I have proudly sold at several craft events and through private orders.
