I was visiting my daughter in Madrid last week when over 100 wildfires were intentionally lit in northern Spain and strong winds caused the smoke and dust to cover the province of Asturias where I live. The population were advised to stay indoors if possible, so I stayed a few extra days with my daughter and took photos of a fabric book I made for my granddaughter Claudia years ago.
I included various embroidery stitches for each letter of the alphabet and added a few little patterns found on the Internet
There are obviously quite a few pages, so I won´t include them all here.
I had fun making this little book and now wish I had included more fancy stitches.
I finished each page with a blanket stitch surround and added beads for interest.
My granddaughter isn´t very interested in sewing at the moment and I was surprised to learn that needlework isn´t learnt at her school anymore. Thank goodness for mums and grandmothers.
I hope to catch up on my blog visits this week as I am way behind. Until next week, happy stitching
