Spread joy! Here are the beginnings of an embroidered panel I am working on. I have loved embroidery since I first made a sampler in Year 4 at primary school. (The girls did compulsory sewing after lunch every Friday, I think the boys did basket weaving.)

I am not sure where I am headed with this…I think it will just evolve, but it is a lovely project to be working on at the beach, easy to pick up and put down, in between playing with my granddaughter, eating, wandering to the beach and watching the tennis. I didn’t bring many thread colours with me and I am thinking I would like the writing to be more vibrant, but hey, I am back in the embroidery groove and l have discovered again how relaxing it is.
