I've gone soft and picked up sewing that extended beyond stitching my umbrella spokes back into place.

All handstitched from scratch, which was quite an achievement for someone with my level of (im)patience. As you can see, I decided to use a button from my own collection instead. Love Purple.

I must admit, I actually enjoyed it thoroughly! It was just a small, novice project, but I needed the practice before going on to bigger things.

What I've learned from this:

1) Blanket-stitch (learned it in school about 8 years ago, and completely forgotten since then)

2) Boxing corners

More crafts to come, since I hauled back heaps of supplies yesterday, from fabric to metal to wood to paper. Talk about mixed media!
