I am in a slightly awkward blogging position at the moment, in that all of my current craft projects are future birthday or Christmas presents (I am staying on top of things this year and starting early!) so I am unable to blog about them without ruining the surprise.
So I was getting kind of upset that I wouldn’t be able to feature any of the cross stitch I’d been working on, but then remembered the little Beer Me decoration I made a few weeks ago. I made it because I needed an excuse to try out the font which I hadn’t used before. I liked how the lettering came out so added the beer mug and gave it to my mum to hang in her kitchen.
It didn’t take long to stitch at all and it’s surprising what you can fit onto such a small area. I’ve seen lots of great designs floating around the internet that use these small embroidery hoops. They’re great for beginners and can make a really lovely gift for someone if you personalise the design.
