Just a few bits for spring

I got Doodle Stitching as a gift for my birthday. So these are just a few stitchings that I have done from the book. I really love this book. It's cute and the designs are so versatile. Her blog, Little Dear Tracks, is full of gorgeous stuff. I am a regluar reader.

New Year Nothingness

I have not felt much like doing anything lately. Maybe it's the weather. I have got my eye on some embroidery books, with my birthday looming some of them will be birthday treats to myself. And I am about to start to stitch this for a valentines card.
I have also discovered White Lies and have been listening to To Lose My Life pretty much all the time. Their new album, Ritual, has just been released which I think will be among my birthday treats. Happy bunny.

Merry Christmas

I tried something different this year with my cards. I normally make them with cross stitch but I tried embroidery, making Christmas trees with lights on. On some I used green organza, some a piece of green fabric (bought with a bag of fabric scraps), and some using a stitched outline of a tree using split stitch. I enjoyed making them, they have been much quicker to make than cross stitch. I enjoyed being creative and making each one individual.
