...but that's about it.
When my new blogging friend Katie of There and Back told me about her new Friday linky party The Handmade Parade (awesome idea) I was excited to be able to see all the great projects she would come up with, and all the great projects all you other talented people are working on. Seriously there is a whole lot of skill I've seen with a needle and thread that I just drool over!!
I thought I'd share what I do have that I've stitched myself, because recently (this week) I have been doing a little handwork!
I made this pouch for a friend's birthday on Monday and hand appliqued the hexagons to the front.
I'm also participating in the Modern She Made swap over on flickr and have been working on something for my partner. I don't want to show too much of it to keep a little bit of a surprise for them but I've added some hand stitching to it and I really like the way it looks.
I used DMC floss for this and I tell you what....I HATE threading needles with this stuff. If there was someone who would thread needles for me I'd hand stitch a couch. Really. Anyone have tips on threading needles?
That's what I've got to show off this week :) Be sure to head over to Katie's and see what everyone's got going! It's pretty amazing...you will be VERY inspired!
