London in a bookmark

23:48 usefulbox 0 Comments

We arrived in London almost 3 months ago so I've been building up my useful box slowly.  I made up a sewing kit before we left & put it in the box that we post via sea mail.  I've been really longing for that box to arrive & it finally did last Thursday!!  Yippee.  I pulled out that sewing with glee & gave it a kiss, like you would kiss the ground after landing safely!  So I feel a bit more human now.

Something that has kept my hand in, so to speak has been making this bookmark for L's 93year old Grandma for Christmas.  I thoroughly enjoyed making it & am pretty pleased with how it's turned out!  I bought the crosstitch pack from Liberty - my new favourite store!  I just now hope that Grandma likes it!!

The kit came with the base fabric, thread, needle, backing felt fabric & the instructions!  Perfect for me since I haven't cross stitched in so long.

Now we just wait to see what Grandma thinks!
