No one can convince me anymore that recycling is a chore, I tell you it’s pure fun:)
My neighbour gave me, about a week ago, when she heard that I like to stitch, two boxes full of tapestry wool and a piece of canvas. She thought that I might have some use for it as she herself (in her late 80’s) cannot stitch anymore.
As it happens a new charity shop just recently opened in our village and I was passing it today while glancing in the window. What did my eye chatch? A hand rotating frame for tapestry and counted thread projects, brand new, never used… a bargain!
The crux of the story is that I was getting frustrated not being able to stitch in the evening, we just don’t have enough light in our house. I’m currently stitching on 32 count linen and good lighting is a must. With my new tool and stash I can stitch with less light and satisfy my addiction.
I have no idea what I will create but the boxes filled with colourful wool will provide me with enough inspiration!
