Sewing up a
My new favorite tool for cross stitch is this rather bizzarre contraption. MagView magnifying lenses help me see the linen threads so much more clearly especially since graduating from 25count linen to 32count... (and there is a little stash of 35count set aside for the next project). Jean from Linen and Raspberry took me on a little shopping trip to The Crewel Gobelin on Sydney's upper north shore. As well as clever sewing accessories they stock a huge range of fabulous cross stitch patterns that tend to stick to one's fingers (they are lovely people too!)
I did bake a big batch of cranberry and pistachio crostini to serve with a dessert of mixed gelatos and lime marinated strawberries. Yum!
Finally, some gorgeous roses arrived on Saturday from my best stitching friends, not one bunch but two!
Until next time.
