This week has been full of lows and highs in that order.
My husband had to go through redundancy again, second time this year!
Using threads is always my therapy, I can immerse myself in my own little thread world and it's a good way to de-stress.
So I made my little red tree brooch out of an old black wool jumper,which I felted and then the bright orange tree on some scraps of hand dyed wool blanket.
On Wednesday I had a very kind email from a flickr friend saying they had seen my work in Stitch Magazine.
I had such a shock when I saw my work on the front cover!
You will find four of my embroideries, which I made especially for Stitch, based on the seasons, in the middle of the magazine.
So a much better end to the week after such a rubbish start and lets hope there will be an end to this recession soon.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.x
