Guest Blogger – My Daughter Lucy

My daughter Lucy made me and others in the family some beautiful cross stitch and embroidered presents this Christmas and so I thought I would use a bit of nepotism and make her my Guest Crafter for today …..

I just do not have any patience with sewing, especially cross stitch and embroidery, to be honest my eyes are rubbish and I can barely thread a needle without my tongue hanging out and going cross eyed …..

….. and then if I get any further all my crisp material and threads start to look grubby and crumpled within seconds!

But as you can see Lucy doesn’t share any of my foibles!

Even her gift tags were cross stitched.

She treated herself to this book on doodle stitching by Aimee Ray and some of the stuff she has done already is just beautiful, I am so jealous!

Beautiful work - she has obviously inherited a creative gene from you.

Beautiful work from your daughter Helen, so detailed and neat. I am very impressed! Like you I do many things but cross-stitch and embroidery are not my thing. I did have a dream last week that I was doig this really detailed cross-stitch and was really into it... very strange!

Lucy has some some lovely little works of heirloom art there they are real keep sakes you should journal a little bit about them when they were done and by who these are the sort of things that become part of your heritage you could even make a paper bag journal to keep them in and ask Lucy to do something for the cover i love the bird cages so you thanks for showing Lucy's art work big love Marc
