A quick stitching project

Devastation this week when I found out my new work diary doesn’t fit into the cover I made for last year’s diary (why can’t they make them all the same size!!!!)  The cover makes me smile every time I see it so I wasn’t happy.

The only good thing to come out of this is that I could justify buying the fabric I couldn’t leave the shop without last week when looking for Christmas fabric 🙂 Now my new diary has a lovely new cover – and I need to go back to the shop for more fabric just in case I need some.

I’ve lightly quilted the fabric with freehand machine embroidery and I used a coloured thread which blended with the fabric rather than being a contrast.  The fabric reminds me of my favourite place the seaside.
