Poor husband in the end didn't get a look in as I'm afraid the machine doesn't have quite the same pull on the heart strings as the sewing machine, so I soon got sick of knitting and had to get back to needle and thread FAST!
I've been finalising instructions for sending off the project below to Country Threads this week. It is full of my favourite fusible web applique with enough embroidery to keep me happy.
Then there was the e-mail in the Inbox from the publisher of Patchwork and Stitching Magazine sending the instructions for the project below for final checking. This is one of my favourite projects - a design for children which is interactive and educational and which I had so much fun making. It's another in my "Cupboard series". You can see some of the others here.
