I have made another dent in the cupboard of shame! I have embroidered simple cross-stitch designs for the three notebooks I found there.
It is silly how long it has taken me to get around to doing this. They did not take long to sew. Now they are done and ready to give to friends.
The notebooks are fabric covered and have grid squares on one side of each page and lines on the other so would be handy for crafty sketching and planning. I bought them ages ago from the bargain bin of the shop where I have my photographs processed. ‘Normal’ people would put a photo in the window.
All three designs came from Reader’s Digest’s The Big Book of Cross-Stitch Designs, and I chose small, simple designs that would fit in the windows and work with my existing collection of embroidery thread.
I made these notebooks without Ryan Gosling and a crying headache! The Notebook and The Bridges of Madison County are the two movies that have given me the biggest crying headaches. Watching them when feeling a bit tired or flat – as that is when such sentimental films appeal – only made the sobbing worse. What are the movies that send you rushing for the tissues?
