I really like all these prints, it was a small charm pack that I found in a shop some time ago. It's such a happy and sunny combination of cute animals, stripes, letters and warm colours. I am making a small gift for a very special baby boy and creating new cross-stitch patterns along the way.
Since I can't really use scissors at the moment, I had to use my rotary cutter. I had to hold the ruler with my right elbow in place while cutting the fabric with my left hand. It was fun! I managed to make a box full of different pieces even though it took me a few days. I told you, I became quite inventive operating with one hand only. Hehe...
Have I mentioned that I used to knit? I don't like to brag, but I used to be really good at knitting. I was seven years old when I became friendly with wool and knitting needles. Oh, it seems like a hundred years ago. I used to knit scarfs, hats, mittens, gloves, jumpers and even dresses. Really? Did I do all of that?? Today I am making something tiny and very Spring like. I am sure it was my colour therapy that sent me in the direction of these beautiful fresh colours. I had to adjust my knitting technique as well and do most of the moving with my left hand while holding the right one still. Yay! It worked!
These are just a few things I am making at the moment, I am trying not to think of all the plans I have made for myself, otherwise I get too overwhelmed and can't concentrate on anything. I am just happy that I can hold my favourite needle in my wonky fingers again. Wishing you all a wonderful and creative week full of sunshine and warmth! Larisa xo
