5 things I liked this week – 27.4.18

1. Going for a lovely walk in Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park.

2. I’m really happy with how my #100embroideredflowers project is going.

3. I’m doing a writing course at the moment and absolutely loving it, my first pieces have just been assessed and I got some comments I’m really pleased with, particularly as I’m a massive fan of the author running the course, honestly, this was me when I read the comments. Anyway, one of the things that I enjoyed this week on the course was this warm up exercise, which wasn’t assessed but as I’m quite proud of it, I’m putting it up here.

There exists J Stafferton

4. When not embroidering flowers, I’m currently indulging in my Dropcloth habit. I’m currently working on a Dropcloth sampler that I’ve unbeknown to me, had for ages, it was in a little envelope in the back of Rebecca Ringquist’s Embroidery Workshops book. Anyway, I’m having a lot of fun working on it and I’ve learnt a particularly cool new stitch, the woven picot stitch.

5. And to top a good week, I’ve found a new book series that I love, okay, the series is only two books long, so far, and I’m already on the second book, having devoured the first but the first book, Carter & Lovecraft by Jonathan L Howard was one of those instantly get-in-to-able books, maths, magic, a private eye and a cool bookstore, perfect!
