I love to hand-sew - I decided to hand stitch two circles of Harris Tweed together using blanklet-stitch. Another disc was blanket stitched onto this and eventually I decided to 'embellish' this with some french knots which I've never done before (and this is very obvious!). I haven't done much in the way of embroidery stitches but it's a very rewarding and relaxing pastime.
I photographed the disc on top of a small wooden trinket box which seemed to complement it quite well. I didn't have any pink embroidery thread so used ordinary thread instead. It was an interesting exercise and took me back to the basics of sitting down and making something entirely by hand ..... which is always nice!
Cheerio an drasda!
