Behind the scene’s xxx

Another week gone and another week closer to Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

Time is flying by and this week it’s been all about getting ready for the festive period. Mum has been helping to plan the window display, our reps have been out to show us their Christmas goodies and we also have another Fabric supplier on board . Things are moving at a fast pace but it’s really exciting.

Many of you know I’ve been practicing hand embroidery which you were all very kind and thanks to you all I’ve decided to take a taster course before I apply for the City & Guilds. I think I just needed a push in the right direction which you certainly gave me. I shall keep you informed on my progress…..fingers crossed.

Also this week my gorgeous hubby has been helping me out again. I decided to make the haberdashery more homely so he set about mounting some of my quilts on the walls…..I like it ๐Ÿ™‚

A huge thank you hubby xxx

I’ve now added a links page to our website www.simplyneedlecraft.com/links

Here’s my list of people who inspire me. These ladies are all lovely, talented and unique. Go and have a look at their pages and you’ll see exactly what I mean. ย  My list isn’t finished yet but I’ve made a start.

We hope you have a fantastic weekend and we will catch up with you on Monday.ย  xxxxx

What do you think?

Many of you know I love quilting and embroidery (quite old fashioned I know).
So the last few weeks I’ve decided to try an embroidery that I’ve not tried before……crewel. I’ve really fallen in love with it.

I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out. I’ve decided to hang it in the haberdashery next week.

So then I decided, because I’m on a roll that I would try some textile art.

What do you think?

I really want to do a city & guilds in embroidery but I’ve always talked myself out of it.

Thanks for reading x
