New Handspun Yarn and New Packaging

After finishing my cross stitch sampler I have been busy hand spinning some new yarns for my Etsy Shop. My husband who is a graphic designer (lucky for me), has also created me some new packaging material as well, which I think has turned out great. I love the new design and I have been busy tagging up my new yarns! I now have a new business card, postcard and stickers thanks to my super talented husband!

Finished Sampler Number One

Finally finished my first cross stitch sampler! I think it has come out really well but I still haven't found a vintage frame for it yet! I think I will have to put it in a modern one for now until I find the right one.

I just realised I haven't posted anything since the last week in April. I have been keeping my head down finishing off my sampler, working on a few designs and also spinning some new yarn for my Etsy Shop. I have about four yummy new yarns to add to the shop this weekend, they are a blend of merino wool, silk and bamboo.

I'm looking forward to starting on my next cross stitch project as I really enjoyed working on the sampler. I love the black thread on white so I think my next piece will be in a similar vein.

Here's my finished sampler and a few close up photos as I love close up images of hand embroidery!
