This is a catch up post. Sometimes I’d rather spend my time crafting than writing and recently I’ve become hooked on Instagram (love_lucie) , finding it so quick to post and watch others’ daily updates.
However I still enjoy the slower pace of the blog, both the reading of blogs and the writing of posts. I remember when I started the blog, nearly 3 years ago, I was concerned to read that blogs were coming to a natural end and everyone was moving onto the faster paced media channels of Utube and Tumbler and Instagram.
I’m glad the blog is still around. The blog doesn’t suddenly start blaring out of my computer when I’m sat in my office with my door open. The blog doesn’t use up my phone battery or data when streaming video, the blog allows me to pick up, read, put down when interrupted, pick up again, recap. I like a still image and the written word.
Any, back to the finished things.
I’ve completed my third jewelry pouch. It’s the blue and white one. The pattern taken from the Zakka Embroidery book.
These are in regular use in my ‘Bling Box’
I’ve stretched my finished flower meadow embroidery. I can see many more of this type of embroidery on the horizon.
And finally I’ve sent off another Morris the Monkey to my husband’s grandson to replace the first.
The fun bit is when you wake him up.
Do you think Henry will notice the imposter; Morris the Monkey the 2nd? (Morris the 1st is on the right)
I’ve 3 other things on the go, but Birthdays and special days need to pass before I share those with you.
Love, Lucie xx
